CAIRO —

Officials say Egypt's interim president has held talks with the army chief and interior minister following overnight clashes across the country that killed at least 30 people.

Adly Mansour met with army chief Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, who is also the defense minister, as well as Interior Minister Mohammed Ibrahim, who is in charge of the police, at the Ittihadiya presidential palace Saturday.

It was the first time Mansour has worked out of the president's main offices since he was sworn-in Thursday as the country's interim leader. Mansour took over a day after the military overthrew Mohammed Morsi, who was the country's first democratically elected president.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.
