At least 29 people died in violent clashes in Egypt Saturday, as the conflict-torn country marked the third anniversary of the uprising that overthrew President Hosni Mubarak. The country's health ministry said at least 167 people were wounded and at least 29 killed in rival demonstrations between opponents and supporters of Egypt's military-led government. Saturday's clashes follow a common pattern of violence that has taken over the country since Mubarak's ouster -- one that was stoked in July, when the army deposed Muslim Brotherhood-backed President Mohammed Morsi.
