One Egyptian Killed in Election Violence       
Riot police clashed Thursday with  
would-be voters, killing one person, and they closed off polling
stations in several Muslim Brotherhood and opposition strongholds as
Egypt entered the final round of its troubled legislative elections.
Police fired into a crowd in the Balteem district of Kafr el-Sheik,
killing Gomaa el-Zeftawi, a fisherman, and wounding 60 other people,
said Mohammed el-Ashqar, a campaign worker for a Nasserite
opposition candidate.
