CLASH AT EGYPT MILITARY BUILDING LEAVES OVER 40 DEAD

Muslim World

At least 42 people were killed on 8 July in clashes outside a military building in Cairo where supporters of the former president Mohamed Morsi were holding a sit-in. Ministry spokesman Khaled el-Khatib said initial reports also indicated at least 300 were wounded, although he gave no details on the circumstances of the killings. Military spokesmen said gunmen from “a terrorist group” opened fire on troops, killing one army officer and wounding 40 soldiers. State television reported that an additional 322 people had been wounded in what it described as an attempt to storm the Republican Guard’s headquarters. A spokesman from Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood and a witness at the scene, however, said military forces opened fire at dawn on the protesters outside the Republican Guard building.
