Families of the victims of violence that took place on the anniversary of the revolution waited at the morgue on Sunday for the autopsy report before burying them. All the reports viewed by Daily News Egypt ascribed the cause of death to gunshots from the clashes in Alf Maskan, Mattariya and Downtown.
6 April members mourned the death of fellow member Sayed Abdallah, also known as Sayed Wezza, on Sunday evening with chants denouncing police violence and military rule and demanding the downfall of the regime.
Wezza died from a fatal gunshot wound in the chest in Sherif Street in Downtown Cairo during clashes between protesters and security forces on Saturday.
Wezza’s mourners then headed to Hilmeyet Al-Zaiytoun to hold the funeral service before burying the deceased in Sharqeya governorate.
Tens of Wezza’s friends took the metro to the Eastern Cairo suburb; the mourners stopped chanting while passing through Sayeda Zeinab neighborhood to avoid clashes with the residents of the area who had stuck the pictures of Minister of Defence Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi on their shops. After the funeral chants were stopped in compliance to the will of Wezza’s family.
