Egyptian Unrest in Wake of Military Coup

Euronews reports tensions remain high in Cairo after the shooting of dozens of supporters of ousted president Mohamed Mursi.

Tanks are out on the streets and have blocked access to the military barracks where Mursi is being held and the shootings happened.

In Tahrir Square, anti-Mursi protesters have begun to congregate again, says Euronews.

Demonstrator Mohamed Adli accused the Muslim Brotherhood of having killed their own members, saying: “It must be they themselves, no one from here would go and open fire there. It is someone from the Muslim Brotherhood so they can say the police and the army are killing the supporters of Mohamad Mursi,” quotes Euronews.
