Middle EastOne killed, several injured as clashes erupt in Cairo

CAIRO: At least one person was killed while several others sustained injures when Egyptian security forces resorted to firing on supporters of the deposed President Mohamed Morsi in Cairo on Friday.

The clashes erupted as protesters from the Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood marched in defiance of an ongoing crackdown by the authorities against them. Police fired live rounds into the air and tear gas to prevent protesters from entering Cairo’s Tahrir Square.

   

Egypt faces mass rallies every Friday in condemnation of the interim government’s crackdown on Brotherhood supporters and the killing of protesters following Morsi’s July 3 ouster.
