Officials: 56 killed in Egypt, most in Cairo

CAIRO — An Egyptian Health Ministry official says 56 people have been killed across the country in clashes between security forces and supporters of ousted president Mohammed Morsi.

Khaled el-Khateeb told The Associated Press that 28 were killed Wednesday in Cairo, where police stormed two sit-in camps by supporters of the deposed Islamist leader, 25 were killed in Minya province south of the capital and one each in the cities of Alexandria, Assiut and Ban Suef.

Separately, an alliance of pro-Morsi groups says the 17-year-old daughter of senior Muslim Brotherhood Mohammed el-Beltagy has been killed. Asmaa Mohammed el-Beltagy was shot dead in the larger of the two vigils stormed by police in Cairo.

Her brother Ammar confirmed her death on his Twitter account.
