Two killed as Friday prayers turn violent in Egypt

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Two Egyptians were killed after Friday prayers between Islamist protesters and residents of a Cairo neighborhood, the interior ministry said in a statement. Police arrested 33 people in five provinces where skirmishes broke out between supporters of the ousted President Mohamed Mursi and those who support Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the recently-elected president and former army chief. Guns were fired during Friday's clashes in the Marg area of northeast Cairo, the ministry's statement said, without specifying whether the dead were protesters. The demonstrations are much smaller than last summer when security forces dispersed two Cairo sit-ins, killing hundreds.
