    Two die in Egypt clashes between police and pro-Mursi students

    Police said they only used tear gas to break up the protests near the defence ministry.

    Two people died on Wednesday in clashes between Egyptian police and student supporters of ousted president Mohammed Mursi protesting against the new military-installed authorities, security officials said.

    The pro-Mursi coalition spearheading the protest movement, which has called for nationwide strike action, confirmed two demonstrators were killed.

    One of them was shot in the head, security officials said.

    State television reported that a policeman had also been shot in the clashes, but was in a stable condition.

    Police said they only used tear gas to break up the protests near the defence ministry and accused the Islamists of using arms.

    However, the pro-Mursi alliance in a statement accused “militias of the putschist authorities” of killing the two men and injuring three others.

    The Brotherhood, to which Mursi belongs, was designated a “terrorist” group last week by the authorities, which accused it of a bombing north of the capital that killed 15 people.

    Police also fired tear gas at a pro-Mursi student protest in the Nile Delta city of Zagazig, the deposed leader’s home town, security officials said.

    Pro-Mursi students have staged defiant demonstrations at universities across Egypt, and on Wednesday the pro-Mursi Anti-Coup Alliance called for more protests.

    “As the students’ strikes succeed in shaking the corners of the coup regime, the coalition of parties, movements and groups defending democracy in Egypt calls for a gradual, decisive nationwide strike,” it said.

    Police seized an underground press in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria for allegedly printing leaflets against the security forces, security officials said. Two people were arrested.

    The Brotherhood’s designation as a “terrorist” group carries harsh penalties.

    It could mean death sentences for convicted Brotherhood leaders and five years’ imprisonment for participants in protests.

    Promoting the group either in writing or verbally can also lead to prison sentences.

    What’s behind road deaths?

    Road accident fatalities in 2013 stood at 651. Mathematically speaking, a little less than two lives were lost every day. While this number is lesser than the 720 deaths in 2011, it is by no means acceptable.
