Egypt protests leave two dead and 400 injured




Protests in Egypt have left two people dead and more than 400 injured.

The protests broke out after the deaths of 74 people during a pitch invasion at a football match in Port Said.

Official said the two killed were shot by police trying to disperse angry crowds in the city of Suez.

In Cairo, thousands of protesters took to the street and marched to the interior ministry, where security forces used tear gas to keep them away.

The Foreign Office has not changed its advice for the country, but continues to warn visitors to avoid crowds and demonstrations.
