CAIRO (CNN) The Egyptian military opened fire on supporters of the deposed president, Mohamed Morsy, and the Muslim Brotherhood, early Monday, killing more than 30 people.
The health ministry put the number of fatalities at 34, and said 200 others were wounded.
CNN counted at least eight bullet-riddled bodies and up to 40 wounded at the chaotic emergency facility in the Egyptian capital, down the street from the site of the shooting. The upper bodies of the victims appeared to be peppered with shotgun pellets and bullet wounds.
Doctors tended to the victims, performing surgeries in many cases before shipping them out to other facilities. Egyptian flags were draped over those who did not survive.

Why do muslim fanatics deem martyrdom desirable/admirable when they are killed attacking infidels but not so when they are killed by their fellow muslim fanatic?
In these radical Islamic countries who arent even respecting basic human rights, where both sides are slaughtering each other as they scream over an arbitrary red line, Allah Akbar, I say until we have someone who knows what theyre doing, I say, let Allah sort it out.
Sarah Palin is spot on as always.
The Muslims love provoking troops to fire upon them, in this way they get media attention, inspire the wrath of other Muslim nut cases and get to go to Heaven for those 77? virgins. What a great deal, become a “SHAHID” (Martyr) AND get the virgins as well.
They love this kind of action and provoked it on purpose.
It is hard for a Westerner to understand the mindset but both the Pro and Anti-Morsi people (if you can call them that) understand the rules of the engagement.
The Pro-Morsi people know what they're doing while the Army understands the game too, so, they shoot to kill the “protesters”.
Don't get too flustered by the 37 killed and 200 wounded, it's all fun and games for these savages. Hopefully the numbers will climb to 500,000 killed and 3.7 million wounded. They love it!
Look all over the region, bloodshed and martyrdom is their way of life so let them keep shedding their own blood, by their own hand and leave the rest of us alone.
A lot of this is agitprop and we are not getting the full story.
Live Thread: Egypt Revolution 2.1 The Ikwhan Strikes Back: Deadly “Day of Rejection”
It’s pretty similar, tactically, to what Lenin once said; “The worse, the better.”
The Bolsheviks would provoke some kind of incident and then utilize the ensuing crackdown - which followed as surely as night follows day - to recruit people to their cause.
Day of Rage - General protest against X for X doing something bad against Islam or Arab society.
Day of Resistance - Violent protest to vent anger at X.
Day of NAKBA - The catastrophe of Israel's creation in 1948.
Day of KAKSA - The setback of the Israeli victory in the 1967 Six Day War.
Day or Period of HUDNA - A fake truce as long as the Islamic side is weak in any conflict with a non-Muslim.
Period of Resistance - Term used by Hezbollah in Southern Lebanon to justify their military takeover of all of southern Lebanon, supposedly to oppose the Israeli occupation of southern Lebanon which ended in 2000.
The resistance continues against Israel...forever until she leaves the “Occupied Territories...wait which ones? 1967, 1956, 1948, 1937, 1917..OK, I get it ALL OF ISRAEL.
Partner [for peace] - a ploy where the Muslim Arab pretends to negotiate in good faith but really planning to kill the Infidel ASAP. Used brilliantly by Arafart and Abu Mazen.
“Two-State solution” - Current term used to establish an PLO state next to Israel in order to speed up Israel's demise. This great solution put forward by the “I don't have a clue” Americans is really a rehash of the UN 1947 Partition for Palestine” plan which, of course was rejected by the Arabs (no such thing yet as Palestinians).
The Arab grievance is always a high priority in their lives because they have nothing else except miserable, lowly lives and terminal hemmroids. They're always revolting and they smell like it too.
So, you see, they never really need and official reason for violence and mayhem, it's all in the playbook, Koran.
Interesting that there are ALWAYS global Muslim flareups as we approach their “Holy” month of Ramadan.
The world needs to be on alert now because as loony as they are most of the year round, during the month of Ramadan they are crazier AND HUNGRY too.
Imagine not eating or drinking all day, in the cruel Middle Eastern sun, no booze, no babes, nothing except Allah HuAkbar and an AK-47.
What are you going to do with yourself? You fast during the day, rape women and launch a civil war? Just for fun.
Can you blame the poor diddums?
It looks more likely that a civil war is likely.
Yup this disaster was determined with the removal of Mubarak and nothing good is in the future of Egypt for a while.
I have a friend from India who filled me in on Ramdamadingalong. Sure they fast during the day but they eat like pigs as soon as the sun goes down. If I had a big old steak, a loaded baked potato, a salad and a couple of slices of apple pie, I could probably stand to miss the next couple of meals without any problem.
But it is not just about stuffing your face or the quantity one eats.
These folks are not on diets like Westerners, they have just enough to eat but I was trying to drive home the point that Ramadan is a tense period in general only to be exacerbated by strife, conflict and civil war.
Last year, I saw a picture of Syrian “rebels” sitting down to a Ramadan break fast meal. The long communal table was decorated with plates, salads and lamb but the centerpiece on that table, every 2 meters were a teepee rack of AK-47s...just in case they had to interrupt their meal with some warfare...
Interesting point, Sadat was attending a parade marking their so-called “Glorious Victory” over Israel (even though they were badly beaten and humiliated by he end of the war) in 1973.
A few days ago, Egyptian was killing Egyptian or trying to kill each other on what bridge over the Nile????? The October 6th bridge!
Good news but can the American press spell correctly today? They can’t even get the al qaeda dictator’s name spelled correctly.
That's the Weather Underground playbook too.
What is also in the playbook is when they are in power they will do the same thing, incite an incident, then use the power of the state in full force to suppress the “rebellion”.
Send Odumbo over there and let him do another Cairo Speech That will solve everything (Yeah right - just inflame them some more).
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
You summed it up quite nicely.
