One person was killed Monday in clashes between ruling party supporters and independents outside a polling station in Egypt's northern Nile Delta region, police reported. Police identified the man who was killed as Ahmed Abdel Salam Ghanim, a supporter of the independent candidate running in Monday's elections for the upper chamber of parliament.
