CAIRO - Twenty three people were killed in Cairo on Sunday, the health ministry said, when Christians, some carrying crosses and pictures of Jesus, clashed with military police in the latest sectarian flare-up in a country in political turmoil.

Christians protesting against an attack on a church say they were marching peacefully when thugs attacked them, drawing in military police who used what activists described as unnecessary force.

More than four vehicles were set ablaze and television footage showed army personnel carriers driving full speed towards crowds of protesters.

Pictures and videos of smashed faces and dead bodies of what activists said were people run over by military vehicles circulated online, prompting angry comments comparing the violence used by the military to that of ousted President Hosni Mubarak's police during the uprising that toppled him this year.
