The US embassy in Cairo said Wednesday that an Egyptian citizen was killed when a US Navy-contracted ship fired warning shots at approaching motor boats in the Suez Canal. "It appears that an Egyptian in the boat was killed by one of the warning shots," said the embassy statement. In the immediate aftermath of the incident, which took place late Monday, the embassy and the US Navy maintained that according to the security team aboard, there were no casualties. One of the shots apparently killed Mohammed Fouad, who was buried Tuesday amid scenes of anger against the government and the US by family members.
