Armed assailants kill an army conscript and injure 2 others in Suez Canal city of Port Said

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.
