Egypt clashes toll reaches 15
Cairo: The toll in the clashes between supporters and opponents of ousted president Mohamed Morsi in different parts of Egypt rose to 15 early Wednesday, with 114 people injured.
A police officer was killed and 24 people, mostly security personnel, suffered injuries in an overnight blast targeting the security department headquarters in Mansoura city, reported the China Daily citing a security source.
Elsewhere, in Cairo`s Nasr City, where pro-Morsi people are staging sit-in for over three weeks, two more people were killed in early morning clashes.
Nine people were killed and 33 injured in clashes that erupted early Tuesday between pro-and anti-Morsi Egyptians in the vicinity of Cairo University, the health ministry said.
On Monday, three people were killed and 44 others injured in Tahrir Square and Qalioubeya`s Qalioub city as protestors from both sides exchanged rocks and birdshots.
Egypt has been witnessing a state of division and polarisation since the armed forces ousted president Morsi July 3 in response to millions of people taking to the streets demanding Morsi be overthrown.
Muslim Brotherhood`s group, to which Morsi is affiliated, refused the invitation to take part in the reconciliation meeting, as they insisted on reinstating their president.
