CAIRO, Egypt (AP) — An Associated Press reporter in the Egyptian capital of Cairo says there are dozens of bodies stored inside a mosque, wrapped in sheets and still unclaimed by families.

They’re some of the hundreds of people killed yesterday in clashes between police and supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.

It’s not clear if the bodies at the mosque are included in the updated death toll of 525 people.

In addition to the dead, more than 3,500 people were injured.

The violence began when police moved to clear two sit-in camps by Morsi supporters. The clashes spread to other cities as well.

The government has declared a nationwide, month-long state of emergency.
