At least 14 people were killed in clashes in several Egyptian cities between opponents and supporters of the deposed president, Mohammed Morsy, Al Jazeera television reported on Thursday, citing state media and local officials.
Eight people, including members of the security forces, were reported to have died in clashes in the northern city of Marsa Matrouh. Casualties were also reported in the port city of Alexandria, Minya in southern Egypt and Fayoum, south of Cairo.
The violence came after the army announced on Wednesday that Mr. Morsy was no longer president. Mr. Morsy was in custody in the Defence Ministry, a spokesman for his Muslim Brotherhood group said on Thursday.
Mr. Morsy’s ouster came after days of massive anti-government protests in the capital Cairo and other major Egyptian cities.
