Three dead, scores injured in Alexandria clashes

Clashes involving shotguns erupted on Thursday afternoon between supporters and opponents of deposed President Mohamed Morsy in the Sidi Bishr district of Alexandria.
According to Akhbar El-Youm newspaper, security forces were able to get the situation under control.
Dr. Sherif al-Agamy, director of East Hospital, said three people were killed and more than 50 others injured with gunshots and live bullets, of which four were moved to the better-equipped Amiri Hospital.
More than 3,000 Morsy supporters had been marching on the Corniche to protest the clearing of the Rabaa al-Adaweya and al-Nahda sit-ins in Cairo.
The march caused traffic to be disrupted on the Cornish in Alexandria, after the demonstrators cut off the road for several minutes only to decide to go a number of streets east of Alexandria.
The Health Ministry has estimated the death toll since the clearing of the sit-ins began to be 525.
