Egypt: 15 killed in a gunfight over market space

CAIRO (AP) -- Egypt's state news agency says a gunfight between two families in a Cairo market has left 15 people dead, including 13 who were burned to death.

MENA said the fight late Monday started when a shop owner opened fire with his automatic rifle and killed two people who spread their merchandise on the ground outside his shop.

The agency said colleagues of the two set fire to the man's shop, where he and 12 of his workers were taking cover, killing them all.
