US-based rights group: 297 killed in Egypt revolt

CAIRO  — At least 297 people have been killed since Egypt's anti-government uprising began two weeks ago, US-based Human Rights Watch told The Associated Press on Monday.
The count is based on visits to seven hospitals in Cairo, Alexandria and Suez that included interviews with doctors and morgue inspections, said the group's Cairo researcher, Heba Morayef.
Egypt's Health Ministry has not given a comprehensive death toll, though a ministry official said they are trying to compile one.
