Cairo riven by clashes as protester dies from inhaling tear gas.

A PROTESTER has died of tear gas inhalation during clashes between Egyptian police and hundreds of stone-throwing demonstrators in central Cairo. Security officials said the protester died on a Nile-side road where clashes have been taking place daily between antigovernment protesters and police near two luxury hotels and the American and British embassies.

The clashes are unrelated to the protests elsewhere in Cairo by soccer fans furious with a court decision to acquit seven police officials for their alleged role in a deadly stadium riot last year.

The fans torched the soccer federation headquarters and a police club.
