CAIRO - Egypt counted its dead on Saturday after Islamists enraged by the overthrow of President Mohamed Morsi took to the streets in an explosion of violence against what they denounced as a military coup.

At least 30 people died and more than 1,000 were wounded after Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood movement called "Friday of Rejection" protests across the country and tried to march on the military compound where the ousted president is held.
