"Army troops firing in the air clashed Sunday with stone-throwing protesters in the strategic city of Suez after crowds blocked a key highway to push for faster reform efforts, including probes of alleged abuses during the uprising that toppled President Hosni Mubarak. The crackdown by military forces threatened to sharply escalate tensions in Suez, a city alongside the famous canal about 80 miles (130 kilometers) east of Cairo, which has been hit by days of unrest over calls for swifter action against Mubarak-era officials."
