Clashes between supporters and opponents of the ousted president leave two teenager dead, 3 injured in Qaliubiya

Clashes in Egypt's Qaliubiya province just north of Cairo between supporters and opponents of ousted president Mohamed Morsi led to the death of two 18 year-olds by gunshots, reported Al-Ahram's Arabic news website.

Al-Ahram quoted a top official in the ministry of health who said 3 others were injured – one by birdshot, two hit by train while fleeing the gunfire.

A security source also told Al-Ahram that a police officer was injured by a stone as the deposed president's supporters attacked military and police attempting to separate the two sides.

Security, according to Al-Ahram, was able to reopen the Cairo-Alexandria agricultural road, which they said was closed for 6 hours by Morsi's supporters.
