The death toll from clashes in Cairo between Egyptian security forces and supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsy and the Muslim Brotherhood has risen to 51, with 435 others injured, according to Health Ministry official Khaled al Khatib.

It is unclear if this death toll includes two security personnel whose deaths were reported on state television.

Witnesses said the military and police fired as protesters took a break from holding a vigil at the Republican Guard headquarters to say their dawn prayers. Morsy was reportedly detained in the building after his arrest Wednesday. But Interior Ministry spokesman Hani Abdel-Latif and army spokesman Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali said security forces were under attack. Ali said "an armed group" used bombs, rocks and bullets to attack the area and the people safeguarding the headquarters building.
