Cairo: At least seven people were killed in the capital as supporters of deposed Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi clashed with police, taking the death toll to over 100 in continuing violence since the army ousted the Islamist leader.

The Egyptian Ministry of Health said the death toll from overnight clashes in different parts of Cairo was seven in addition to 261 injured.

The clashes occurred between security forces and supporters of Morsi, the country's first democratically elected president who was ousted by the army two weeks ago.

Nineteen people were wounded in clashes in the central Ramses area near Tahrir Square and on the main bridges over the Nile, emergency services chief Mohammed Sultan said.
