Protests continued for a second day on Wednesday in different places in Egypt despite a government ban on further protests.

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.

However, a third protestor has died in the governorate in clashes with police. The city has reported three deaths in two days protesting.

Egypt's Interior Ministry declared earlier on Wednesday that further protests were banned. Police have detained 90 people who tried to continue protests in the Tahrir Square in central Cairo on Wednesday, according to official MENA news agency.
