Young activist Ahmed Naguib, 18, gunned down during recent clashes between security forces and protesters just off Tahrir Square, has died, Mahmoud El-Shennawy head of Cairo's Helal hospital confirmed early Sunday.

His funeral is set to take place at Omar Makram Mosque on the outskirts of Tahrir Square after the late afternoon Asr prayers on Sunday. 

Naguib was hospitalised last week after receiving the fatal head injury during street battles, which erupted following commemorative protests for last November's Mohamed Mahmoud Street clashes, Egyptian state news agency MENA reported. Naguib was then declared clinically dead last Wednesday.

The body has been transported to Cairo's Zeinhom morgue to proceed with the necessary post-mortem procedures, El-Shennawy added in his Sunday statement.

Naguib is the second protester to die since last week's clashes began on 19 November.

Gaber "Jika" Salah was shot in the head and chest on 20 November on Mohamed Mahmoud Street. Egypt's Health Ministry confirmed that 314 protesters have also been injured during last week's protests.
