The Health Ministry says clashes between police and protesters loyal to former President Mohammed Morsi have left at least 11 people dead on the first day of a vote on Egypt’s new constitution.
The clashes began hours after Egyptians began voting on the new charter that represents a key milestone in a military-backed roadmap put in place since the ouster of Morsi last July.
The ministry says the deaths occurred in Cairo, the adjacent province of Giza and two provinces south of the capital, Bani Suef and Sohag. The statement says 28 people also have been wounded.
