CAIRO — US-based Human Rights Watch said at least 297 people have been killed since Egypt's anti-government uprising began two weeks ago.

The revolt against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak that erupted on Jan. 25 brought days of fierce clashes with police and intense battles with violent pro-Mubarak gangs.

The violence has spread to other parts of Egypt and the toll includes a significant number of deaths outside the capital Cairo.
