CAIRO - An Islamist protester and a policeman were shot dead in Cairo on Thursday, security sources said, one year after government forces killed hundreds of demonstrators in the worst bloodshed in Egypt's recent history.

The 31-year-old protester died from a bullet wound to the chest during clashes between protesters and police in Giza on the outskirts of the capital, the sources said.

Earlier in the day, gunmen on a motorcycle shot a police officer in the same district.

A top security official in Cairo said 30 members of the Brotherhood were arrested on Thursday for rioting.

Small, hit-and-run demonstrations are the most the group can muster after a fierce security crackdown has seen many thousands arrested and hundreds sentenced to death.
