Thousands of Muslim Brotherhood supporters are demonstrating in Cairo on Friday against the ouster of deposed PresidentMohamed Morsi.
At least three demonstrators were shot dead by Egyptian security forces on Friday outside the Republican Guard barracks in Cairo where Morsi is being held, security sources said.
According to AFP, the supporters, who approached the army compound with the attempt of breaking inside, returned fire.
The Egyptian army’s spokesperson denied that soldiers fired on the demonstrators and insisted that the soldiers were using only blank rounds and teargas. It was unclear whether security forces other than the army were present.
