Death toll climbs in Egypt

Clashes continued into the night across Egypt after a day violence that left at least 24 people dead and hundreds wounded. Demonstrators for and against recently ousted President Mohamed Mursi faced off in the streets of Alexandria. Anti-Mursi supporters took cover behind riot police vehicles while exchanging rock and molotov cocktail bombardments with Mursi supporters. At least 12 people were killed in the clashes. Friday's day of rage saw thousands of pro-Mursi supporters rally for the Presidents reinstatement after the army put him on house arrest earlier in the week. In Suez, clashes erupted after a pro-Mursi demonstration near the Governorate headquarters. And in Cairo Friday night, the army is greeted with cheers by anti-Mursi demonstrators. The army-backed interim government is preparing for new elections, although no timeframe has been declared.
