Six Egyptians killed in clashes with security forces: correspondent

 Five protesters were killed after being hit with cartouche bullets in Suez city east of Cairo while one person was killed in Ismailiya province, Egypt’s emergency services reported late Friday.

As massive protests took off in Egypt against President Mohammed Mursi on Friday, to mark the second anniversary of the revolution that ousted Hosni Mubarak and brought in an Islamist government, the country’s security forces fired tear gas at protesters near the presidential palace on Friday.

The demonstrators were to gather at Tahrir Square and in front of the presidential palace, where anti-Mursi rallies last December descended into deadly clashes with Islamist supporters.
