Report: Alexandria port is closed

The port in Egypt's second largest city, Alexandria, was closed Monday, reports said, as unrest in the city grows, DPA reported.

The coastal city to the west of Cairo is a major trading hub for Egypt, handling the majority of its external commerce.

Arab broadcasters al-Jazeera and al-Arabiya were broadcasting taped footage from the city, which showed heavy levels of violence in recent days, as protesters clashed with security forces.
