4 die in Egypt clashes after man killed by police

Published: 01.20.13, 14:46 / Israel News

Egypt's Health Ministry says overnight clashes between police and residents of a densely populated district just north of Cairo have left four people dead. Security officials say the clashes began when a bystander in Shubra al-Kheima was hit by a stray bullet fired by police chasing an alleged drug dealer. They began on Saturday night and continued until Sunday.


The ministry said in a statement that the 12 wounded included two officers and a police conscript. Police brutality was one of the major causes of the 2011 uprising and clashes between police and civilians have been common since. (AP)
