Egypt: 1 protester killed in anniversary rallies

Posted:

CAIRO (AP) -- Egyptian health officials say a teenager has been killed in clashes between protesters and police in the city of Suez on the second anniversary of the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak's regime.

The officials in the Suez Canal city identified the teenager as Mahmoud Issa, 14, and said there may have been more fatalities. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

At least 186 people have been injured in clashes around the country, according to the head of the country's ambulances services, Mohammed Sultan.

The clashes came as the country's mainly liberal and secular opposition held rallies across much of Egypt saying the goals of the 2011, anti-Mubarak pro-democracy uprising have not been met and denouncing Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.
