UK BANNED Press TV: Violence continues to flare up across Egypt after a violent crackdown by security forces removed encampments of the supporters of ousted president, Mohamed Morsi, in Cairo.
The several incidents of violence took place after Egyptian security forces attacked supporters of Morsi in Cairo on Saturday.
Fierce clashes broke out between the Egyptian security forces and thousands of Morsi supporters in Nasr City District of Cairo with armed forces firing tear gas to disperse thousands of angry pro-Morsi protesters at the 6th October Bridge in central Cairo.
A Muslim Brotherhood official said at least 2,200 people had been killed and over 10,000 injured in the forceful evacuations, noting that the figure was provided by Raba'a hospital. On August 12, the Anti-Coup Pro-Democracy Alliance called on people to hold nationwide rallies to counter the military clampdown on their sit-ins.
The Egyptian army had earlier warned of taking action against the supporters of the ousted president.
Hundreds of protesters, mostly Morsi’s supporters, have been killed or wounded during the unrelenting violence that has erupted since the removal of Morsi.
