CAIRO, August 15 (Itar-Tass) - Death toll from Wednesday’s violence in Egypt, which swept Cairo and some provinces, has risen to 525. Nearly three thousand people were injured, the Egyptian Health Ministry has said.

Fierce clashes between police and supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood erupted after police on Wednesday began to clear protesters’ camps in Cairo. The Islamists retaliated with acts of sabotage and provocations across the country. Dozens of police stations, buildings of local authorities and several Coptic and Greek churches were put on fire. In a number of areas armed Islamists mounted attacks against police offices.
