A US citizen has died in Alexandria as clashes between supporters and opponents of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi turned violent on Friday, but little is known of his identity.
State TV reported the man was an American journalist. The US embassy have yet to confirm anything. Reports claim that he was filming images outside a local office of the Muslim Brotherhood. Security officials say the man died of a stab wound to the chest.
At least 70 others have been wounded as fighting erupted during anti-Morsi marches, held ahead of mass rallies planned for the weekend to mark the president’s one year anniversary in office. Many are disappointed with his rule, and are targeting the Muslim Brotherhood who backed his election.
Protesters stormed the headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood in Alexandria, demanding the ‘fall of the regime’.
Religious leaders have called for calm as they fear the spectre of civil war.
