Protesters killed in Suez

Suez protesters killed during Friday clashes were shot by live ammunition at close range and in some cases from behind, forensics head Ihsan Kamil Gorgy told Al-Ahram Arabic website Saturday.

The forensics team has secured bullets extracted from the bodies of victims as evidence. The prosecution has allowed the burial of eight of the victims.

The forensics team has now moved to Port Said to examine the bodies of victims of the ongoing clashes there, added Gorgy.  

Nine were killed during clashes between protesters and police in Suez on the second anniversary of January 25 Revolution.

Clashes are currently ongoing in Port Said between police and protesters angered by a court verdict issued Saturday in the Port Said football massacre case. While 21 were condemned to death for their part in the attack of 1 Februrary 2012 that killed over 70 Ahly fans, the list of the condemned contains no security officials who stand accused of allowing the massacre to happen.

Professional killers!
Legitimate protestors or thugs are not responsible for these sort of killings! Egyptian citizens are not cold blooded murderers, these are professional killers.

Proof
This is consistent with infiltrators within protesters being the ones doing the shootings not police etc. In other words it proves what the MB has been saying. Which is that the opposition/counter-revolution are causing chaos to undermine Egypt's elected government. Everything is becoming clear. Morsy must now declare a state of emergency and deploy troops to the country to get people back in line and back to work. The old regime's counter-revolution will not end without force. It's just sad that so many "revolutinary" figures have either joined their ranks or been co-opted as figure heads to mask the counter-revolution. (I'm looking at the NSF here).
