Friday’s clashes across 19 governorates have left 30 dead and 1138 injured, announces Egypt's health ministry.
The clashes erupted between supporters of deposed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, who was fielded by the Muslim Brotherhood, against opponents and security forces.
Morsi's supporters staged nationwide protests against his removal from power on Wednesday evening. The protesters accuse the Armed Forces of staging a coup against an elected president and are, therefore, violating democratic legitimacy.
Protesters died in several cities and districts, including Cairo, Giza, Alexandria, Assiut, Luxor, Al Arish and Ismailia.
