Egypt Protesters Shot

 

” Doctors at an Islamist-run field hospital said another 1,000 had been injured in the clashes, which broke out shortly before pre-dawn prayers at a Cairo vigil staged by backers of Mr Morsi.

Gehad El-Haddad, a Muslim Brotherhood spokesman, said the army had opened fire on protesters who had spilled out of the vigil on to a main thoroughfare. State news agency MENA quoted an unnamed security source as saying only teargas was used to disperse demonstrators. But Mr Haddad said the victims had suffered bullet wounds to their heads and chests.

“They are not shooting to wound, they are shooting to kill,” Mr Haddad said, adding that the death toll might be much higher.”
