Three people were killed during Friday rallies staged by supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, the Health Ministry said.

Ministry spokesman Ahmed Kamel said that the fatalities were reported in Giza and the central provinces of Fayoum and Minya.

Ten people were also injured in the protests, the spokesman said.

Friday's rallies were called by the National Alliance for the Defense of Legitimacy, Morsi's main support bloc, in the run-up to the third anniversary of former president Hosni Mubarak's departure on February 11, 2011.

The alliance has staged demonstrations on an almost daily basis since the army unseated Morsi – Egypt's first freely elected president – last July following mass protests against his rule.
