Death Toll In Egypt Violence Rises To 525

UPDATE:

CAIRO (AP) - Angry supporters of Egypt's ousted president have stormed and torched two buildings housing the local government in Giza, the city next to Cairo that is home to the famed pyramids.
    
Associated Press reporters saw the buildings - a two-story colonial style villa and a four-story administrative building - set ablaze on Thursday.
    
The Giza government offices are located on the Pyramids Road on the west bank of the River Nile.
    
State TV blamed supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi for the fire. Its footage shows both structures burning with fire men evacuating employees from the larger building.
    
Tamarod, the youth movement that organized the mass rallies preceding Morsi's ouster on July 3, called for the creation of popular committees to protect government and private property.

PREVIOUS COVERAGE:

CAIRO (AP) - An Egyptian Health Ministry spokesman has again raised the death toll from the previous day's clashes between police and supporters of the country's ousted president to 525.
    
The spokesman, Khaled el-Khateeb, told The Associated Press on Thursday that the number of injured in the previous day's violence has also risen and now stood at 3,717.
    
Wednesday's violence began when police moved to clear two sit-in camps in Cairo by supporters of Mohammed Morsi, ousted in a military coup on July 3. The clashes there later spread to elsewhere in Cairo and a string of other cities.
    
El-Khateeb said 202 of the dead were killed in the larger of the two camps, in Cairo's eastern Nasr City district.
    
The violence prompted the government to declare a nationwide, month-long state of emergency.
