CAIRO/ISMAILIA, Egypt - Seven people were shot dead in the Egyptian city of Suez during nationwide protests against President Mohamed Morsi on Friday, underlining the country's deep divisions on the second anniversary of the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak.

One of the dead was a policeman, medics said. Another 456 people were injured across Egypt, officials said, in unrest fueled by anger at Morsi and his Islamist allies over what the protesters see as their betrayal of the revolution.

Morsi said the state would not hesitate in "pursuing the criminals and delivering them to justice". In a statement, he also called on Egyptians to respect the principles of the revolution by expressing their views peacefully.
