A Health Ministry official indicated that ten people have been killed in clashes between Morsi supporters and opponents as demonstrations continued across Egypt today, according to the Associated Press.

A Health Ministry official says 10 people have been killed and 210 wounded in clashes around the country involving opponents and backers of ousted President Mohammed Morsi, as well as security forces.

Khaled el-Khatib, a Health Ministry official, says four people were killed near the Republican Guard building in Cairo, where troops opened fire on Morsi supporters marching on the building Friday afternoon.

In Cairo, another person was killed in clashes that erupted after nightfall when Islamists attacked Morsi opponents near Tahrir Square.

Four others died in the northern Sinai city of el-Arish, where Islamists stormed the main government building. The 10th was killed in the southern city of Assiut.

El-Khatib says 210 people nationwide have been wounded.

There are conflicting reports that Egyptian troops fired upon pro-Morsi demonstrators.

Al Jazeera English is reporting that at least three Morsi supporters have been killed, but the army denies opening fire on the crowd.

At least three supporters of deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi were killed by gunfire as a crowd of several hundred tried to march towards the military barracks in Cairo where he is believed to be held.

Al Jazeera’s Matthew Cassel, reporting from near the military barracks, said several dozen people were also injured by shotgun pellets fired by the army.

“One protester broke away from the rally to stick a pro-Morsi poster on the barbed-wire around the barracks. He was shot in the head with birdshot,” he said.

Security forces were cordoning the Republican Guard barracks but it was not immediately clear who had opened fire.

An army spokesman denied that troops opened fire on supporters, saying that soldiers were using only blank rounds and teargas. It was unclear whether security forces other than the army were present.
