Three killed in clashes, attacks across Egypt




At least three Egyptians were killed and eight wounded on Friday in separate incidents involving Islamist protesters and militants across the country, security and medical sources said, Jerusalem Post reports.

Violence has polarized Egyptians since the army overthrew elected Islamist President Mohamed Morsi last year following mass protests against his rule.

Small hit-and-run demonstrations are the most Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood can muster after a fierce security crackdown in which hundreds have been killed and many thousands detained.
One civilian was killed and two others wounded by gunfire in northeast Cairo during clashes between Islamist protesters and residents, a security official said.

Further south in the province of Fayoum, a 17-year-old Islamist protester was killed during clashes with the police, medical and security sources said. Five others were wounded, including three policemen.

Security sources said another civilian was killed and one wounded when gunmen opened fire on an army checkpoint near the Suez Canal city of Ismailia.
