Five men died in Cairo in separate incidents involving a bomb blast and protester clashes with security forces Thursday, the first anniversary of the ouster of Islamist President Mohammad Morsi, security sources said.Thousands of Egyptians opposed to the army's ouster of Morsi last year joined rare protests in cities and towns around the country, witnesses said. Since Morsi's ouster, his Muslim Brotherhood group was labeled a terrorist organization and thousands of Islamists have been jailed on accusations of terrorism and violence while militant Islamists have stepped up attacks on security forces.Three of Thursday's victims died in clashes that broke out in Cairo between protesters and security forces, security sources said.The government of President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, who led the army ouster of Morsi, says that it is committed to a democratic transition and the rule of law following the 2011 uprising.
