Egyptian security and medical officials say an American has been killed in the Mediterranean coastal city of Alexandria during clashes between supporters and opponents of Egypt's embattled President Mohammed Morsi.
Alexandria security chief Gen. Amin Ezz Eddin told Al-Jazeera TV that an American was killed Friday in Sidi Gabr Square while photographing the battles between opposition youth and members of the Muslim Brotherhood, from which Morsi hails.
A medical official told The Associated Press the American was wounded by gunshots and died at the hospital.
Six Egyptians have been killed in days of clashes ahead of nationwide protests Sunday demanding Morsi's removal.
The State Department said Friday that Americans should defer nonessential travel to Egypt, citing the uncertain security situation. It also said it would allow nonessential staff and the families of personnel at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to leave Egypt until conditions improve.

Demonstration in front of the UN in NYC demanding that the 0b0z0 administration stop supporting and financing the Moslem Brotherhood.
The reporter from the UN site on Egyptian TV says that demonstrations will spread in major American cities including one in front of the WH that will stay until Morsi leaves.
I don’t know about that but they are apparently not going to let 0b0z0 and his media get away with looking the other way.
So, you get reports from the other side of the world about what’s happening in NYC but “it didn’t happen” in the MSM’s opinion.
Isn’t that wonderful? Our “free” press is chained in their own mind! All in one voice: SILENCE! VIVA 0b0z0!
