Three killed in Egypt as Morsi backers, opponents clash

Civilians runs across a street in Cairo as policemen gather during clashes with Muslim Brotherhood supporters following a rally marking the first anniversary of a brutal Cairo crackdown, on August 14, 2014Three people were killed as supporters and opponents of Egypt’s ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi clashed after Friday prayers, security officials said, a day after five people died in sporadic violence. Supporters of Morsi have attempted to stage rallies since Thursday, the first anniversary of a deadly police crackdown in Cairo that left hundreds dead, but security forces have swiftly quashed them. On August 14, 2013, after then army chief and now President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi had removed Morsi, Egypt’s first freely elected president, police cracked down on his supporters at protest camps in Cairo’s Rabaa al-Adawiya and Nahda squares. On Friday, two people were killed when pro-Morsi supporters clashed with their opponents after the weekly Muslim prayers in Cairo’s western neighbourhood of Faisal, a security official said.
