Official death toll as of Tuesday from Egypt's January 25 Revolution, although many are still missing

Protests in Egypt that led to the overthrow of former president Hosni Mubarak have left at least 384 people dead and 6,467 injured, according to health ministry figures published on Tuesday.

"The latest count based on information from hospitals and health offices has shown that 384 have been martyred (while) 6467 have been treated for injuries in hospitals," Health Minister Sameh Farid said in a statement.

A final death toll is yet to be announced, he said.

Demonstrations which erupted on January 25 demanding Mubarak's resignation saw fierce clashes between demonstrators and security forces, and later between supporters and opponents of the 82-year-old strongman.

Hundreds remains missing, 11 days after Mubarak stood down, human rights groups have said.
