7 killed in overnight clashes in Egyptian capital

CAIRO (AP) — Clashes overnight between police and supporters of Egypt’s deposed president left at least seven people dead, authorities said Tuesday, in the latest eruption of political violence on the country’s streets since the military toppled Mohammed Morsi nearly two weeks ago.

The bloodshed, which comes a week after army troops and police killed more than 50 Morsi supporters, made clear the determination of the ousted Islamist leader’s camp to resist the new political order and to maintain pressure on the military and the interim administration to offer concessions.
