At least ten supporters of deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi have been killed today as a crowd of hundreds tried to march towards the military barracks in Cairo where he is being held by the military that overthrew him.
Thousands of Morsi supporters demonstrated in cities across the country on what his Muslim Brotherhood called a 'Friday of rage' against what they describe as a military coup that toppled Egypt's first elected leader a year after he took office.
In Cairo, a crowd of Islamists surged across a bridge over the Nile River after nightfall and clashed with Morsi opponents near Tahrir Square and outside the state TV building. One witness reports gunfire and stone throwing.
Khaled el-Khatib, a Health Ministry official, says four people have been killed in Cairo and two elsewhere, with 180 wounded.
A witness said he saw several people fall to the ground, wounded by shotgun pellets. Security sources said at least three demonstrators were killed when security forces opened fire.
