(original title, had to be shortened to fit):Bloodbath in Cairo: More than 120 dead and 1,000 injured after police 'shoot to kill' in violent clashes which have rocked Egypt
More than 120 people are believed to have been killed at a protest in support of Egypt's ousted President Mohammed Morsi, according to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Security forces are reported to have started shooting demonstrators shortly before pre-dawn morning prayers at a round-the-clock vigil in Cairo being staged by backers of Morsi, who was removed from power by the army three weeks ago.
Makeshift field hospitals around the area near the Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque were overwhelmed, with one doctor telling the BBC that more than 1,000 had been injured.

The imams are probably frothing at the mouth while whipping up the bearded thugs.
How many have to die before Hillary is eligible to be awarded the Nobel “Peace” prize? The commies have to give it to her if she is going to be crowned as the new POTUS.
A weekend in Chicago.
I don’t think Obama was required to do anything, let alone be responsible for scores of deaths, before he got his Nobel Peace Prize.
That the Nobel committee won’t award one to Hillary is proof they are sexist!
Dear Egyptian military;
The MB is a racist/marxist terrorist group that derives its power from hostile groups and nations that would see you subjugated. If you want to join the family of modern nations, kill as many of them as you can.
Uhhh,, democracy works.. sort of.. it is the middle east after all.
The MB figure the higher the body count the more press they’ll get. They care nothing about the people, only power.
12%? Poor effectiveness unless they're trying to defocus the rest by forcing 'em to carry and tend wounded.
If they did better I'd recommend using these guys on our "Occupy" demonstrations.
The Egyptian military needs to learn about the old double tap. This could have been really successful with that.
Exactly- plus unless we get some multiple and credible reports- why should we believe 120 were killed?
These MB are good at disinformation.
the ones with the best snipers win!
The headline is meant for the bored. Oooh, entertainment! Big bloodbath numbers, nevermind the reality is much smaller.
The army can’t get cold feet now, but the Muslim Brotherhood probably loves the headlines and pictures. The army needs to deliver a crippling blow to the MB before Obama and the rest of the Islamists force them to stop.
wth is going on? The Egyptian military used to be pretty patriotic and controlled, their officers educated in Europe and the US
somehow I suspect we are not getting the whole story here
Gadzooks! One hundred-twenty true believers dead for Allahu? Where, oh where... will they find the 8,639 vestal virgins to go with Helen Thomas to greet the new arrivals?
Damnit, listen to me! Get word to Morsi that finding a single virgin, much less more than eight thousand... among my supporters is impossible!
This violence, and the military’s response, was as predictable as the rising sun. Yet, the rock-throwers are still busy throwing rocks. It can’t, at this point, be a surprise that the army is shooting back. Since rocks are unlikely to inflict damage why don’t they go home and think of another way to “protest?” The traditional Islamic bomb vest comes to mind. Is there some “face” here that I don’t understand? Perhaps somebody familiar with the culture can respond?
