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.

"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.

You da man Jeff !
Hmmm? Can we use this example of how to handle leftists, demsheviks and other enemies of liberty?
Will there ever come a day when a child could say, “Mommy what’s a demshevik?”?
It all depends on the range, whether the shot skipped off of something, and other factors we are not aware of. Either can leave superficial wounds or kill, depending on how far away you are.
I’d like to think so, but christian belief dictates that we have to tolerate them, rather than using the eugenic solution they will use on us.
Skipping birdshot off pavement to spread the pattern to hit the mob in the legs is an old street cleaning tactic. It can also break the momentum of a mob on the run (front ranks stumble or fall, tripping up those pushed by the rest causing a pile-up and blocking the street), and is what the striker and street sweeper shotguns were designed for.
I’m not talking about killing people, just the bad idea. Once they lose government schooling the natural competition of the education market will drive bad ideas out quickly.
Morsi supporters will be shot until protests end. Any leaders calling for protests will be hung by the neck until dead. The world does not want Islam. No negotiation.
Give the Worthy Oriental Gentlemen ... as Napoleon said, ... a whiff of the grape (shot). A Muslim is either at your feet or at your throat.
Hopefully, the Gippos still have mounted police.
