The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood’s website has reported that around 120 people were killed and 4,500 were injured on Saturday when security forces opened fire on a protest by supporters of deposed President¬†Mohamed Morsi [2]¬†in Cairo. Egyptian newspaper Al Masri Al Youm has reported around that around 75 people were killed, neither of the reports were confirmed.

In Alexandria, nine Egyptians were killed and 72 were injured Fridy in clashes between supporters and opponents of Morsi, Egypt’s MENA news agency reported.

The violence erupted on the fringes of a round-the-clock vigil being staged by backers of Morsi, who was ousted from power earlier this month by Egypt’s military following mass protests against his first year in office.

Al Jazeera’s Egypt television station showed medics desperately trying to revive casualties arriving at a Brotherhood field hospital at a sit-in at Rabaa al-Adawiya, a mosque in northeast Cairo.
