3 women killed in clashes between Egypt factions

CAIRO: Clashes on Friday between loyalists and opponents of Egypt’s ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi left three women dead in the Nile Delta city of Mansura, medical sources said, reports BSS.
“Three people were killed and seven others wounded by birdshot and stabbing attacks during clashes between Morsi supporters and his opponents,” Adel Said, a hospital official in Mansura, told AFP.
He gave the names of the three people killed, all women. Another health official in Mansura, Abdel Wahab Suleiman, confirmed the death toll, saying three women were killed by gunshot and ten people wounded, one of whom was in a critical condition.
A pro-Morsi protester injured in the clashes, also speaking by phone, said thousands of loyalists were marching through the city’s narrow streets when “thugs” attacked them with guns, knives and rocks.
