Four people were shot and killed and hundreds more were injured in Port Said during the funerals for 33 protesters killed on Saturday. The initial protests broke out after 21 people were sentenced to death for their roles at a deadly soccer match last year. Protests raged in Cairo for the fourth day as Egyptians accused President Mohamed Morsi of corruption and betraying the democratic aims of the revolution. Since Thursday, 46 people have died in protests, and President Morsi has declared a 30-day state of emergency and issued a curfew for three Suez Canal provinces.
