Officials say at least 421 people were killed after police moved to clear two sit-in camps by supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi. The deadly clashes spread to other parts of the Egyptian capital and a string of other cities across the country.

Officials also say more than 2,900 people were injured.

The violence prompted the government to declare a month-long state of emergency and a nighttime curfew in Cairo, Alexandria on the Mediterranean and 12 provinces where violence broke out.
