DHAKA: Two people have been killed in clashes between protesters and police in the Egyptian capital, medics have said.
The two men were hit by gunshots on the edge of Cairo’s Tahrir Square at dawn, reports said, according to the BBC.
One died at the scene and the second in hospital.
More than 50 people have died in clashes in cities across Egypt in the past week, the deadliest violence since President Mohammed Mursi took office.
Critics accuse him of betraying the revolution, which he denies.
On Tuesday, Egyptian army chief Gen Abdul Fattah al-Sisi warned that the current political crisis could lead to the collapse of the state.
Scuffles continued in the early hours of Wednesday morning between police, who used teargas, and protesters, who threw stones at security officers.
