Egypt unrest: Morsi marchers die as army fires
BBC News ^ | 7/5/2013 | BBC

Egyptian troops have opened fire on supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi marching in Cairo, killing three people and wounding dozens more.

The shooting came as crowds moved on the Republican Guard headquarters, where Mr. Morsi is believed to be held.

Later the Muslim Brotherhood's leader told supporters that protests would continue until Mr. Morsi was reinstated.

The army, which removed Mr. Morsi on Wednesday after days of unrest, denied firing live rounds at demonstrators.

However, the BBC's Jeremy Bowen at the scene says he saw soldiers fire on the protestors on Friday.

About 2,000 people had marched on the officers' club of the Republican Guard after passionate Friday Prayers at the nearby Rabaa-al Adawiya Mosque.

As the crowd grew, got angrier and pushed forward the troops opened fire-first into the air, then at the crowd our correspondent reports.....

Three people were killed and 69 injured in the shooting, the head of Cairo's emergency services said.

The Muslim Brotherhood's supreme leader, Mohammed Badie, addressed protestors near Rabaa al-Adawiya Mosque.

"We shall stay in the squares until we bring President Morsi back to power," he told a cheering crowd. Mr. Badie also denied reports that he had been arrested on Thursday.

Thousands of supporters of Mr. Morsi have been rallying in Cairo and other cities to demand is reinstatement.

In Qina in the south, security forces opened fire on protesters trying to storm a security building. At least two people were injured......

As long as the taliban brotherhood is all bunched together like that, might as well...

I wonder where the reports are about anti-Morsi protesters being raped and/or killed by muzzies? Or is it not politically correct to report such things? Wouldn’t want to confuse the readers with what the reporters want them to think, eh?

The Egyptian Army to save the country needs to kill every Islamofascist it can.

When the islamic mullahs took over Iran , those peaceful men of religion ordered thousands of Iranians murdered .

The Egyptian Army deposing crazed muslim leaders is good news;now if the Turkish Army would follow suit.

Overall the world was safer when a strong mostly secular leaders ruled Iran,Egypt,Libya,Iraq,Turkey,etc.Even Krazy Khaddafi was less of a threat than a Muslim Brotherhood Libya.

Religious and tribal fanatics in positions of power always cause great suffering and bloodshed.

By the way,I classify Marxist-Leninist Communism as a form of religion ,but where the Ideal State is worshipped along with its prophets.

I believe we have a Muslim Brotherhood sleeper agent occupying the American presidency.

Morsi supporters are looking for an excuse to gang rape more women, a demonstration here, a little march over there. They are bored.

Great article, Jeff. Interesting that the White House has been strangely silent—no surprise there. Your Eradicate Sharia Law article is phenomenal—says it all. I checked your site==what dedication!

Only 3 died? That’s only 216 virgins... A paltry amount.

Thank you. Just trying to do the most I can to inform others and get people involved in the fight against those, foreign and domestic, who want to destroy our constitutional republic and all that it is founded upon.

Are there degrees of savagery? Is this bunch better savages than the others? They both murder, rape, steal, yell and chop heads.

There is no way democracy can come to a country like that. The only thing that works is an iron-fisted dictatorship that keeps the savages from acting out all their savagery.

They did indeed hit more. Something like 69 were reported wounded. Sounded to me like the Army was aiming low so the wounded could crawl off under their own power. And the Egyptian Army does indeed have birdshot style anti personnel rounds such that it might not have required 69 actual shots. As soon as rioters start rubbing their sore spots they lose interest in bellyaching about pointless problems——amazing how that works.

Yawn...

The MB is humiliating itself by being aggressive while only mustering 2,000 demonstrators.

In contrast, the protests to oust Morsi drew 22 Million protesters!

A few deaths from such a small demonstration will be dismissed out of hand by the Egyptian populace.

Egyptians don’t have the Western mentality of “any death is a big deal.”
