Egyptian forensic authorities announced for the first time on Thursday a breakdown of the figures for those killed and injured during the violent dispersal of two protest camps on 14 August.

The dispersal of the camp in eastern Cairo's Rabaa Al-Adawiya Square left 377 dead, while the camp in Giza's Nahda Square resulted in 21 deaths, forensic officials told reporters.

The camps had been set up by supporters of Mohamed Morsi, who was removed from the presidency in July after mass protests.

A total of 726 protesters were killed nationwide in the period between 14 August and 13 November, Egypt's forensic medicine authority said.

Officials put the total number of police killed nationwide in the unrest on 14 August at 55, with 10 deaths occurring in the capital.

Some 120 people were killed in gun battles between pro-Morsi protesters and security forces in central Cairo's Ramses Square 16 August the forensic experts said.

A total of 146 members of the security forces have been killed since mid-August to date in Cairo alone, it added.

Several rights groups have released different figures for the violence.

Amnesty International said in October that since Morsi's ouster on 3 July, over 1,300 people had died in protests and political violence. Of these, 483 died in Cairo on 14 August at Rabaa Al-Adawiya and Nahda, including nine members of the security forces.

The state-run National Council for Human Rights urged citizens on Wednesday to submit testimonies related to violent incidents that have taken place since Morsi's exit. It said that state bodies are also providing necessary data for a report it is currently drawing up and is expected to publish shortly, after a fact finding committee assigned by the interim President Adly Mansour concludes its work.

I'm a Copt
For all I care, the number of those killed got what was coming to them. They terrorized the streets, burned Coptic churches and businesses, and blocked roads, something that is against the law in US protest laws. I for one am a strong supporter of the dispersal, even if it meant killing 398, many of whom wielded weapons and killed over a hundred security officers. If these were "peaceful" protestors, we wouldn't see a high number of security officers being killed. That's the difference between amateur weapon handlers and professional police work. And for that, I thank General Al-Sisi!

I'm a Copt and Conservative in values
If it makes any sense to you that "peaceful" protestors killed 146 members of the Egyptian security forces, then I have a different opinion of "peaceful". The Rabaa crowd were not MLK Junior followers. They were bigots who terrorized the streets of Egypt and burned 50+ churches and businesses.

Murderous Terrorist Islamo Fascists
The reality is that Egypt is in a fight for its life and future against these fascists who are willing to do anything to stay in power. They are willing to sacrifice women and children in order to serve their needs to destabilize the country. How many security forces have been killed in the Sinai in addition to the cairo numbers?

Murderers and liars
Anything said by the Junta can not be believed. Only a third -party account can be taken seriously. Those who murder children can also lie. The Junta and its government are murderers and liars.

Murderers
Yes,398 killed by authorities they admitting now while the rest who were killed these by authorities had forced to accept and sign on paper that they died by natural death.Yes they can lie before the world but they won't be able to hide their crimes at the day of Judgment before the Almighty.Every siner and merderer must be punished by God.
