CAIRO - Two protesters were killed as supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood clashed with police in Cairo and in cities across Egypt, medical and security sources said, in a show of defiance despite a state crackdown on the Islamist movement.

Islamists opposed to the army's overthrow of President Mohamed Morsi of the Brotherhood have been holding daily demonstrations in Cairo and in other cities even since the army-backed government declared the Brotherhood a terrorist group last month, a move that upped the penalties for dissent.
