CAIRO, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- Egyptian military armored vehicles headed to Ramses Square in downtown Cairo on Friday evening to contain the ongoing clashes between supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi and residents of the area, the state TV reported.
The army vehicles moved a few hours after the curfew started and the clashes were still going on.
Ramses Square has been in a mess throughout the day, as a large number of pro-Morsi protesters engaged in clashes with some of the residents as well as with security forces, which led to a lot of damage, including a building set ablaze.
The confrontations across the country left at least 37 killed and around 400 injured on Friday, according to official reports.
On Wednesday, at least 578 were killed and over 4,200 injured when security forces dispersed major pro-Morsi sit-ins in Cairo and Giza, besides relevant confrontations across the country.
