Egypt: Protester Shot Dead in Port Said

A protester was shot dead in the Egyptian city of Port Said on Thursday night, as clashes between demonstrators and police in the city continued for the fifth straight day.

The demonstrators are protesting against the death sentences that a court imposed on 21 people who participated in a riot after a soccer match in Port Said last year.
