CAIRO (AP) — Egypt's interior minister says 43 policemen have been killed in clashes with supporters of the ousted Islamist president. That raises the overall death toll for Wednesday to nearly 200.

Mohammed Ibrahim, who is in charge of the police, said Mohammed Morsi's supporters stormed 21 police stations and damaged or torched seven churches across the nation. He said they also stormed the Finance Ministry in Cairo and occupied its ground floor.

Ibrahim told a televised news conference that the 43 policemen killed included two major-generals and two colonels.

The Health Ministry said 149 civilians also were killed in the clashes.
