Seven killed, 261 injured in overnight Egypt clashes


CAIRO: At least seven persons were killed and 261 others injured in overnight clashes between security forces and the supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi in Cairo, the head of Egypt’s emergency services said.

401 people were arrested over the clashes.

The head of Egypt’s army, General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, announced on July 3 that Morsi was no longer in office and declared that the head of the Supreme Constitutional Court, Adli Mansour had been appointed as the new interim president.

Since then, Egypt has been the scene of rival rallies and clashes between thousands of the supporters and opponents of the ousted president.
