Dozens have died and hundreds are injured after a shooting early Monday aimed at supporters of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.
Soldiers and police opened fire outside the Republican Guard headquarters in Cairo, killing at least one officer. Muslim Brotherhood allies were there performing dawn prayer during a sit-in meant to demand his release, according to the AP. Morsi, who had been accused of strong-arming his party into power, was deposed by the military Wednesday. His successor, Adly Mansour, is charged with creating a temporary government.
The U.S., Turkey, and Qatar have condemned the violence that led medics to treat people in the streets and forced the creation of a bloody, makeshift morgue in Nasr City. Military tanks guarded Tahrir Square by Monday evening.
