The state news agency reported that two members of Egypt’s security forces were shot dead while breaking one of the protest camps.

The move, around 7 am, came after international efforts failed to mediate an end to a six-week political standoff between Mursi’s supporters and the army-backed government which took power after his ouster on July 3.
