A demonstration held by supporters of presidential candidate and former army chief Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi came under attack on Tuesday in north eastern city Qalyubia's Khanka, leaving one dead and another injured.

According to the Middle East News Agency (MENA), supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi threw molotov cocktails at the pro-Sisi demonstrators. A student reportedly passing by died in the violence and another was injured.

On Monday, unknown assailants attacked an open-air campaign rally organised by supporters El-Sisi in the northern Nile Delta's Damietta governorate.

According to Al-Ahram's Arabic news website, three were injured and the canopies hosting the conference caught fire when the assailants threw molotov cocktails before the event started in the town of Kafr Saad.

Egypt's upcoming presidential elections will take place on 26-27 May, with only El-Sisi and Nasserist political Hamdeen Sabahi facing one another.

Wake up it's over
You Ikhwani sheep need to wake up. It's over. The only opinion that matters is that of the Egyptian people. The Egyptian people know who you are it's done they won't be fooled again. So stop wasting your time. No country no court no civilized organization in the worl will bring you back. The only way back is through your actions. Denounce your terrorist group denounce violence the Egyptian people will forgive you . After all your just brain washed sheep
