Death toll of the continued Egyptian clashes between supporters and opponents of ousted Islamist- oriented President Mohamed Morsi has risen to 12 late Tuesday after three people died of their injuries.

Nine people were killed and 33 injured in clashes that erupted early Tuesday between pro- and anti-Morsi Egyptians in the vicinity of Cairo University in Giza governorate, the Health Ministry said earlier.

As the death toll rose, the ministry said the number of the injured also increased to 86.

Clashes also occurred in Cairo's Tahrir Square and Rabia al- Adawaeya Square of Nasr City during the day, said the ministry.

Late on Monday, three people were killed and 44 others injured in Tahrir Square and Qalioubeya's Qalioub city as protesters from both sides exchanged rocks and birdshots.

The clashes took place despite interim President Adli Mansour's call for national reconciliation on Monday.
