Egypt’s Health Ministry says 34 people have been killed in clashes between security forces and supporters of the ousted Islamist president.

Street battles raged for hours in Cairo and other parts of the country as authorities tried to separate rival crowds supporting Mohamed Morsy and the military.

Authorities said 30 died in Cairo.

The clashes took place on a national holiday celebrating the 40th anniversary of the start of the 1973 Mideast war.
