Three dead is terrible news - these soldiers are horrible shots!
Don’t they train? Thats all they can hit?
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.
