Clashes leave 2 dead in Giza

Freedom and Justice Party report three dead in Matariya clashes

Security forces and demonstrators clashed in Giza on Friday afternoon, resulting in the death of two people.

The demonstrations were in support of former president Mohamed Morsi who was deposed in July 2013, according to state-owned Al-Ahram.

The recently dissolved political wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), reported that three people had been killed and tens injured during clashes with security forces in Matariya, Greater Cairo.

The FJP also reported clashes with security forces in Faisal, Haram and Alexandria.

Police dispersed two marches and made arrests in the east of the Alexandria governorate on Friday according to the state-run MENA.

These fresh clashes come the day after five people were killed on Thursday as people turned out to demonstrate on the one-year anniversary of the dispersal of two pro-Morsi protest camps. The dispersals resulted in the deaths of at least 904 people according to Human Rights Watch.

On Thursday the Anti-Coup Alliance, a coalition in support of Morsi, called for a “fourth revolutionary wave” saying that the movement is “in its infancy and mobility in the street continues”.
