Officials say more than 80 people have been killed in Egypt as protesters loyal to the ousted President Mohammed Morsi clashed with security forces.

Most of the reported deaths were in Cairo, but about 25 were elsewhere, including 12 in Nile Delta cities.

Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood said yesterday that there would be a week of daily rallies across Egypt.

Two days ago the protesters' camps were cleared, leaving at least 638 dead and sparking international condemnation.

In the wake of Wednesday's violence, the interior ministry says police have been authorised to use live ammunition within a legal framework.

A state of emergency is also in force, including a dusk-to-dawn curfew.
