UPDATED , reports now suggest that the woman died of a heart attack HERE
Original report below:
LINK Organizers of the Gaza Freedom March in Cairo reported the death of Marie Renee, a French citizen, from injuries sustained at the hands of Egyptian security forces during a demonstration with the Gaza Freedom March on Thursday, sources said.

Earlier reports of the assault of two women and a man participating in a demonstration outside of Egypt's government buildings by local police were confirmed by Ma'an, as activists refused to leave the area without permission to access Gaza.

Reports said the woman died in the Cairo Hospital. She was traveling with a French delegation of approximately 300 nationals.
Things are getting very ugly now, recent tweets:
