An Egyptian army conscript was shot dead and two others injured in an attack by unknown assailants in the Suez Canal city of Port Said on Friday night, Al-Ahram’s Arabic website reported.

One of the injured soldiers said that masked men riding a motorcycle opened fire on the conscripts and fled, according to Al-Ahram. Security forces have said they are taking measures to catch the perpetrators, including sealing off the city’s entrances and exits.

A man was shot dead and dozens injured in Port Said earlier on Friday during clashes, reportedly between supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi and residents in the city.
