CAIRO, Jan 26 (Reuters) - Two deaths in Cairo late on Wednesday were caused by a car crash and not by clashes between protesters and police, an Egyptian security official said, contradicting comments made earlier by another security source.
The second official said a policeman and a woman bystander died after being hit by a car near the centre of Cairo. Another man was injured. The official said that the crash was not linked to anti-government protests across the city.
“An investigation is under way,” said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity as is normal in Egypt.
