Senior ministry official Khaled el-Khateeb said more than 80 people have also been injured.
The clashes took place as rival crowds of supporters of the military and backers of the ousted Mohammed Morsi poured into streets around the country today, as a holiday marking the anniversary of the last war with Israel turned into a showdown between the country's two rival camps.
Mr Morsi's supporters and security forces fought pitched street battles for hours in several Cairo locations that now look like combat zones, with small fires burning, black smoke rising and the sound of gunshots piercing the air thick with tear gas.
