CAIRO - Two men were shot dead in Egypt's capital on Wednesday, a security source said, raising the death toll to at least 54 in seven days of clashes, the deadliest violence since President Mohamed Morsi took office last June.

The men, named as Ahmed Saad Eldin and Reda El-Refai, were hit by gunshots before dawn on the edge of Tahrir Square, the source said, adding it was not clear who fired the shots.

Police have been firing volleys of teargas against protesters throwing stones in streets around the square.
