Death Toll Passes 600 In Egyptian Clash

Posted: Updated:

the Egyptian Health Ministry has raised the death toll from the day's violence that followed a crackdown on two camps housing supporters of the ousted president to 638.
The number of injured in the previous day's violence also has risen to nearly four thousand.
Wednesday's violence began when police moved to clear two protest camps housing mainly Islamist protesters calling for Mohammed Morsi's reinstatement.
The crackdown prompted clashes elsewhere in Cairo and other cities.
