CAIRO, Egypt (AP) — An Associated Press reporter in the Egyptian capital of Cairo says there are dozens of bodies stored inside a mosque, wrapped in sheets and still unclaimed by families.
They're some of the hundreds of people killed yesterday in clashes between police and supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.
It's not clear if the bodies at the mosque are included in the updated death toll of 525 people.
In addition to the dead, more than 3,500 people were injured.
The violence began when police moved to clear two sit-in camps by Morsi supporters. The clashes spread to other cities as well.
The government has declared a nationwide, month-long state of emergency.
— 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.
