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

A member of the April 6 movement (C-back), which spearheaded the uprising against former president Hosni Mubarak, is attacked by supporters of General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in Cairo's Talaat Harb square, on January 25, 2014
