Over 500 people were killed in Egypt on August 14 during the clearing of two major protest areas in Cairo set up by supporters of the deposed president, the Health Ministry said. A total of 294 people were killed in Rabaa al-Adawiya in north-eastern Cairo and al-Nahda Square south of the capital. The rest of the deaths occurred in other areas of the country.
