Egypt deploys troops to Suez to quell 'out of control' clashes

Egypt deployed troops Saturday to the coastal city of Suez after a security chief declared the area "out of control" following deadly clashes on the second anniversary of the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak.

The announcement on state-run EGYNews followed reports that at least seven people were killed Friday, six in Suez when gunfire erupted during clashes between anti-government protesters and those loyal to President Mohamed Morsy.
