Seven people were killed in Egypt on Tuesday during protests, Al-Jazeera quoted the Health Ministry's as saying.

According to Yahia Moussa, three people were shot dead in Nahda Square (near Cairo University) at a pro-Morsi demo and one other killed by birdshot while taking part in a march, Al-Jazeera reported.

President Mohamed Morsi, Egypt's first freely elected leader, was still clinging to power on Tuesday night with tens of thousands of people on the streets from rival factions. There were some clashes between Morsi's Islamist supporters and those who want him forced out after only a year in office.
