Suez - Egyptian police fired rubber bullets, water cannon and tear gas at hundreds of demonstrators in the eastern city of Suez, on a third day of protests calling for an end to President Hosni Mubarak's rule, a witness said.

Demonstrators early on Thursday morning torched a police post, after setting fire to another police post and a government building a day earlier.

All three protesters killed in demonstrations in Egypt so far died in Suez. A police officer was killed in Cairo.
