Two more people have died in clashes between police and protestors on Wednesday, raising the death toll to six, according to Pan-Arab TV channel Al-Jazeera.

Protests continued on Wednesday across Egypt despite a government ban. In Suez, protestors attempted to set fire to the municipal complex, but only one room was damaged and the fire had been put out, an official of the governorate told Xinhua late Wednesday.

The Suez city has reported three deaths in two days protesting.

Some 500 protestors have been arrested, according to a statement of the Interior Ministry on Wednesday.
