Egypt deployed troops to the coastal city of Suez on Saturday after a security chief declared the area “out of control” following deadly clashes on the second anniversary of the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak.

The announcement on state-run EGYNews followed reports that at least seven people were killed Friday, six in Suez when gunfire erupted during clashes between anti-government protesters and those loyal to President Mohamed Morsy.

Nationwide, according to health ministry officials, more than 450 protesters and 95 members of security forces were injured in demonstrations that marked Friday’s anniversary.

The news also came as Morsy, according to state-run al-Ahram, was holding a meeting with his defense council over how to calm the unrest. Prime Minister Hesham Kandil vowed to hold perpetrators accountable, according to state-run MENA.
