Incident comes hours after clashes between Morsi supporters and detractors kill 53 on Yom Kippur War anniversary.
(jpost.com) CAIRO, Oct 7- Suspected militants killed six Egyptian soldiers near the Suez Canal and fired a rocket-propelled grenade at a state satellite station in Cairo on Monday, suggesting an Islamist insurgency was picking up pace three months after an army takeover.
Dozens of supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood were killed on Sunday in clashes with his opponents and security forces.
The death toll from the violence across the country rose to 53, state media said, with 271 people wounded in one of the bloodiest days since the military deposed Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July.
Further confrontations may shake Egypt this week, with Morsi’s supporters calling protests for Tuesday and Friday.

The New Hampshire Attorney General’s office said Wednesday that it is investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a 45-year-old woman who was shot by state troopers in a residential area of the state’s largest city Monday night.
Officials said that Wendy Lawrence, of Canterbury, New Hampshire, was shot four times and died of a gunshot wound to the chest in Manchester. The shooting was the conclusion of a police chase that began earlier Monday evening when Lawrence was stopped by a state trooper for driving erratically on Interstate 89.
According to the official release, Lawrence gave the officer a non-driver’s license ID and claimed she had a valid license. But when the officer returned to his car to radio for a record check, Lawrence pulled back onto the highway and drove away.
Sudanese security forces have opened fire on demonstrators, with at least four people reported to have died, as thousands marched through the streets of the capital in continuing protests over fuel price hikes.

Police on Saturday confirmed that four civilians had been killed, but blamed the deaths on “unknown shooters”. At least 700 people involved in Friday’s demonstrations were arrested.
