The agency quoted the head of the emergency ward at the Suez Canal's city's main hospital as saying five other people were being treated for gunshot wounds after the clashes, raising the possibility of more fatalities.
Suez today saw some of the worst clashes between police and protesters, who set ablaze a government building that once housed the city's local government.
The protests have been called by the liberal and secular opposition to denounce Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, who took office in June as the country's first freely elected civilian president.
