CAIRO (AP) -- Egyptian officials have raised the overall number of people killed in nationwide clashes between police and supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi to 278, most civilians.
That makes it the deadliest day in Egypt since the 2011 revolution against Morsi's predecessor Hosni Mubarak began, leading to more than two years of turmoil
The Health Ministry says 235 civilians were killed as street battles erupted Wednesday following the storming of two protest camps set up to demand Mohammed Morsi's return.
Ministry spokesman Mohammed Fathallah says the number of injured also has risen to 2,001. He says the 235 figure is separate from 43 policement reported killed by the Interior Ministry.
