The Egyptian Ambulance Authority said at least 51 people were killed and 435 others wounded outside the Republican Guards compound, increasing an earlier death toll of 42.

"At least 51 people were killed and 435 were wounded in the incidents," Mohammad Sultan, the authority chairman, told the Anadolu Agency.

"The wounded have been admitted to the hospital for treatment."

He did not specify whether there were women and children among the dead.

In a televised press conference, Egyptian police and army spokespeople insisted that protesters attacked the vicinity of the Republican Guards headquarters and the army and police forces standing guard in the earlier hours of Monday, killing two policemen and one army officer.

Demonstrators have been protesting an military roadmap that included the ouster of the country’s first democratically elected president Mohamed Mursi and the suspension of the constitution.
