Clashes in Alexandria's Sidi Gaber neighborhood that erupted Friday have resulted in a third death, after 14-year old Ahmed Ahmed Metwally passed away at University Hospital.

Alexandria's District Attorney al-Sawy al-Barbary ordered an investigation into the death of Metwallym, who was stabbed in the chest.

He also ordered that a team be organized to question the injured, write up medical reports, and inspect the scene of the clashes.

A team was sent to the Muslim Brotherhood headquarters to assess the damage after the building was attacked on Friday.

Alexandria Security Chief Major General Amin Ezz Eddin added that the number of police injured during the clashes had reached 10.
