Cairo (CNN) -- Bloodshed intermingled with blood oaths early Wednesday in Egypt, as time appeared to be running out on Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy.

Health officials have counted the bodies of 23 people, who died when Morsy's angry opponents met head on overnight with his supporters at Cairo University.

Hundreds more left the clashes with wounds, bruises, and other injuries, state-funded Al-Ahram news reported, after rocks, Molotov cocktails and bullets flew.

Demonstrations elsewhere in Egypt were mostly peaceful, and protest leaders have called for non-violence.

Personally, I'd pass.
