3 killed in Egyptian clashes, state TV says

Egyptian soldiers detain a man during clashes in the streets of Alexandria, Egypt, on August 30, 2013.

Three people were killed and 60 others were injured in clashes amid protests in Egypt on Friday, Egyptian state TV reported, citing the health ministry.

Details on where and how the casualties happened weren't immediately available.

Friday featured more protests in Cairo by supporters of former President Mohamed Morsy.

Egypt has been in turmoil since the military ousted Morsy in early July. The military and Morsy opponents have battled Muslim Brotherhood members and other Morsy supporters.

Earlier this month, hundreds of people -- citizens as well as members of security forces -- were killed. Many of the deaths occurred when the military used force to clear two pro-Morsy sit-in sites in Cairo, and when violence raged after pro-Morsy supporters staged demonstrations two days later.
