Nearly 50 people were killed in weekend clashes that erupted during rival rallies marking the anniversary of Egypt's 2011 that toppled Hosni Mubarak.

3 years after Egyptians rose up to demand the overthrow of Mubarak, thousands of demonstrators in Cairo's Tahrir Square yesterday, chanted slogans backing another military man, General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, as police clashed with Islamists and activists elsewhere.

49 people were killed in 24 hours of fighting across Egypt, as police and supporters of the military-installed government clashed with Islamist backers of President Mohamed Morsi, who was deposed in July after a single turbulent year in power.
