Via The Telegraph:
Five people died on Sunday at funerals for some of the 31 people killed the day before, hospital officials said, after protests against death sentences handed down to football rioters were met with live fire as well as tear gas.
In an especially worrying development, protesters were also armed and fired shots at police lines.
The weekend violence in Port Said, at the Mediterranean end of the Suez Canal, followed fighting in cities across the country on Friday, the second anniversary of the Tahrir Square revolution. At least nine people were killed, bringing the weekend total to 45, with over 1,100 injured.
Mr Morsi has now responded to the violence, announcing a state of emergency in Suez, Ismalia and Port Said for 30 days.
Earlier, one leading member of Mr Morsi’s own Muslim Brotherhood had called on him to “step in with full force”.
