Canadian dies from gunshot sustained in Egypt feud
Canadian caught in southern Egyptian family feud dies of gunshot wounds
By The Associated Press

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) ' An Egyptian security official says a Canadian tourist who was caught up in a family feud has died of his wounds.

The official says 24-year old Jeff Francois, who lived in Cairo and was an employee of the Institute of Canada, suffered respiratory complications because of a gunshot wound and died on Saturday.

Francois was shot on Wednesday when members of a feuding family opened fire on his car when his driver refused to stop at an illegal checkpoint in the town of al-Samata.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak to the media.

Family feuds and violent revenge attacks are common in southern Egypt, where many families take the law into their own hands, refusing police intervention.
