"More than 100 people have been killed and 1,500 injured at a protest held by supporters of ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi in Cairo, doctors say."

However the health ministry has put the death toll lower, at 38.

...

'Shooting to kill'

It appears that clashes began after some of the Morsi supporters tried to block a main road in the area, and security forces responded.

The state news agency Mena quotes a security official as saying they had been trying to stop fighting between rival sides, and that eight security personnel had been injured.

The official added that live fire had not been used, only tear gas.

But our correspondent says medics at the hospital believed about 70% of the casualties were caused by live fire - with many of the victims hit in the chest or head by snipers firing from rooftops.

Ahmed Nashar, a Brotherhood spokesman witnessed what happened near the Nasr City mosque where demonstrators built a wall to protect themselves.

"When I arrived, bullets were whizzing past my ears," he told the BBC. "Today was just brutal - people were fired at, with live firearms."

Our correspondent says Morsi supporters are furious about the role the military is taking, and in particular the head of the army, General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, whom they say is killing Egyptians.

Her spokesman called "on all actors to refrain from violence and to respect the principles of peaceful protest".

UK Foreign Secretary William Hague said: "Now is the time for dialogue, not confrontation. It is the responsibility of leaders on all sides to take steps to reduce tensions."

Morsi accused

Mr Morsi, Egypt's first democratically elected president, has been formally remanded in custody at an undisclosed location for an initial 15-day period, according to a judicial order on Friday.

The order was the first official statement on Mr Morsi's legal status since he was overthrown.

He has now been formally accused of the "premeditated murder of some prisoners, officers and soldiers" when he and several Muslim Brotherhood leaders were freed during a breakout at a Cairo prison in January 2011.

He is alleged to have plotted attacks on jails in the uprising that overthrew President Hosni Mubarak.

Mr Morsi is also accused of conspiring with the Palestinian militant group Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip and has strong links with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Two human rights activists visited Mr Morsi's place of detention on Friday, although he reportedly refused to meet them, instead sending his chief of presidential staff Refaa el-Tahtawy - who is also held at the location.

Mr Tahtawy told the visitors they were being treated well but complained that they were unable to meet relatives.

On Saturday, the interior minister Ibrahim said that Mr Morsi would be transferred to Torah Prison, where Mubarak is being held.

Morsi supporters are getting trashed by people who are tired of the Brotherhood crap. But then isn't that the way these Islamists are? Fight to the death-and for what?

Desperately sad situation in Egypt. Many Egyptians must have thought they were electing themselves a government that would bring them an islamic utopia. They have been indoctrinated into believing that islam is the answer to all their ills and woes and that if only they could procure themselves a government that would reflect their muslim beliefs,all their troubles would come to an end. How tragic it can be when reality bites.
Religion in politics is a scourge on humanity. It breeds sectarianism,bigotry and despotism,it holds people in a stone age mentality that perpetuates superstitious stupidity.
Secular democracy is not perfect,far from it,but compared to theocratic governance it is a million times more preferable.

Morsi and the Muslim thugs brought their own brand of oppression...Islamic style.

What the people are demanding is true freedom and liberty, that will NEVER happen with the Muslim Bros in power. They realize that now and are suppressing the Muslim Fanatics. The understand that the Muslim Bros aren't interested in sharing power or democracy.

He's already proved an incompetent if not a danger to our country's best interest so I wouldn't be surprised if he did help them.

Off topic but what did you think of his statement that Ho Chi Minh was inspired by Thomas Jefferson?

You need to read something other than that outhouse religious order publication.

First point, the US only sends Egypt military aid.

Second point, we stopped that on day one of the Morsi downfall, and have gone on record by saying no aid will be sent to Egypt in the near future.

So where do you get the idea we are just dying to send aid to Egypt? We Americans fully recognize you Allah is taking care of everything-like cleaning house.

They wanted an Islamic rule with only them in power effectively oppressing everyone else who disagreed with them. They should haven't been so puffed up with their power grab and should have thought twice about revealing their true intentions of wanting to murder Christians.

But in the end I'm grateful they didn't waste time showing their true evil intentions sooner rather than later.
