Egyptian security forces killed at least 120 people and injured more than 800 others on Wednesday while clearing two sit-in camps of supporters of the country’s ousted President Mohammed Morsi , the Muslim Brotherhood  said.
An Egyptian Health Ministry spokesman said only 26 civilians have been injured in the morning’s crackdown in Cairo , and no civilians have been killed.
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.
With the Brotherhood calling on its supporters to take to the streets, the violence risked further destabilising a pivotal Arab nation and endangering hopes for democratic government.
