A passerby who was wounded in a firefight between Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandil's bodyguards and a group of "thugs" died of his injuries on Monday, a security official said.
The man, a street vendor, was shot in the neck on Sunday night when a group of people driving a pick up traded fire with Qandil's bodyguards who were travelling in a convoy with him. Qandil was not hurt.
His bodyguards opened fire at the truck carrying five people that had cut into Qandil's convoy as it crossed Cairo's October 6 bridge across the Nile.
