Two were injured early Sunday in a drive-by shooting that targeted a group of opponents of ousted President Mohamed Morsi in the Nile Delta city of Mansoura.

Eyewitnesses said that unidentified gunmen riding a car opened fire at a barricade of an anti-Morsi vigilante committee in Thawra Square before fleeing the scene. The attack left two people injured.

More than 181 people were killed Friday in mass rallies staged by pro-Morsi demonstrators in several Egyptian cities to protest Wednesday's violent dispersal of their two main protest sites in Cairo and Giza.

Egypt has been in a state of turmoil since security forces violently dispersed the sit-ins in Rabaa al-Adawiya and Nahda squares.

The Health Ministry has said that at least 638 people had been killed in nationwide violence since Wednesday, including 288 in Rabaa and 87 in Nahda.

However, the pro-Morsi alliance has put the number of deaths from the Rabaa sit-in alone at some 2,600.
