An Egyptian woman votes in the country's constitutional referendum in Cairo on Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014. Military helicopters buzzed overhead and hundreds of thousands of soldiers and police were deployed as Egyptians voted Tuesday on a new constitution in a referendum that will pave the way for a likely presidential run by the nation's top general months after he ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.

CAIRO — The Health Ministry said 11 people have died in clashes between security forces and protesters loyal to toppled Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.

Tuesday's violence comes as a two-day referendum begins on a new constitution that, if adopted, would replace an Islamist-tilted charter approved under Morsi's rule. Morsi was ousted in a popularly backed coup last July.

The ministry said the deaths occurred in Cairo, the adjacent province of Giza and two provinces south of the capital, Bani Suef and Sohag. The statement said 28 people also have been wounded.
