4 Morsy supporters killed at rally: Muslim Brotherhood
Four women supporters of Egypt’s deposed president Mohammed Morsy were killed in an attack in a Nile Delta city, his Muslim Brotherhood group said on Saturday.
The attack took place at a pro-Morsy march early on Saturday in Mansoura, the group said on its website.
“Killing women in Mansoura by using live bullets and long knives in front of army and police is a shame for the plotters of the bloody military coup and for everyone who has welcomed or stayed silent over its destructive repercussions on human rights”, Essam al-Erian, a senior Brotherhood official, posted on his Facebook page.
There was no official comment on the report.
The army ousted Mr. Morsy on July 3 after millions of Egyptians took to the streets demanding his resignation and early presidential elections.
The Brotherhood has denounced Mr. Morsy’s toppling as a coup and vowed street protests until he is restored to office.
Dozens have died in clashes across Egypt since Mr. Morsy’s overthrow.
At least 51 people, mainly Brotherhood supporters, were killed last week when soldiers opened fire on protesters outside the Republican Guard building in Cairo, where Mr. Morsy is believed to be held.
The army said its soldiers acted in self-defence.
