CAIRO (AP) — More than 40 people have been killed in clashes across much of Egypt today between security forces and supporters of the ousted president.
Rival crowds of supporters of the military and backers of the Islamist Mohammed Morsi it deposed poured into streets to mark a major holiday. It's the 40th anniversary of the start of the 1973 Mideast war with Israel, a holiday the military-backed government had wanted to use to pay tribute to the armed forces.
Street battles raged for hours in some neighborhoods of Cairo, as Morsi supporters fired birdshot and threw firebombs at police who responded with gunshots and tear gas.
The Health Ministry reported 40 people killed in Cairo and four others killed in provinces south of the capital, with more than 240 people injured. The Interior Ministry, which is in charge of the police, said 423 Morsi supporters were detained across the nation.
