Egypt's health ministry announced in a statement on Friday evening that a 15-year-old boy, Ihab Ahmed Selim, was killed by a gunshot wound he sustained during the clashes. Earlier on Friday, a protester was announced dead in Alexandria when clashes erupted between hundreds of supporters and opponents of Morsi, although his identity was still unknown.

The health ministry added that five were injured during the clashes in Alexandria and four others were injured in scuffles across Cairo on Friday.

Security forces then intervened firing tear gas to break up the crowd and arresting a number of Morsi's supporters.

Another 13-year-old boy was killed in Alexandria on Friday evening following the clashes, a security official confirmed to Ahram Online. 

The boy was hit by a public transport bus while attempting to escape security forces that were attempting to disperse the crowd, the Middle East News Agency Mena (MENA) reported.

A pro-Morsi coalition had called for mass demonstrations on Friday to denounce the ongoing trial of the toppled leader and commemorate the 90-day anniversary of the forcible dispersal of the two main pro-Morsi protest camps in Cairo on 14 August, during which hundreds of protesters were killed.

In response to the call, hundreds of protesters gathered in Cairo, Giza and Alexandria for the first Friday without a nightly curfew in force since the day of the dispersal.

At the same time in Alexandria, hundreds of supporters of the country's interim leaders rallied in the central Qaed Ibrahim mosque to voice their backing for the Egyptian army that removed Morsi amid mass protests against his rule and to denounce "terrorism," Al-Ahram’s Arabic website reported.

Shame
I reiterate what I said a week ago about this. I am extremely sorry about these boys being killed. But WHERE ARE THE PARENTS? Are they so madly brainwashed to bring their children in protests like this? They start the riot and then use their children as a shield, then brag about and whine when something bad happens? It's a total cowardice.

Terrorists have no regard who they hurl up front to fight their fight.
So no surprise young ones will be victimized due to the ignorance, and utter disregard for the life of these kids, by their MB parents.

We shall blame the parents and MB
The question is: why this young (supposed innocent) boy were doing out there by demonstrating?? why the parents let him?? was he brainwashed by MB element? I felt a deep sadness for children used shamelessy by this terorist group and its clonies. I believe, the parents or guardian of this boy (if they are aware of his going to demonstration) and or anyone else who convinced this soul to go to street shall be investigated and taken responsible for his death. As for the police I believe they are only doing their work.
