Morsi supporters slain as violence escalates in Egypt

CAIRO – Egyptian military officials say gunmen killed at least five supporters of the former president when people tried to storm a military building in Cairo.

The official, who declined to be named because he was not authorized to brief reporters, said a group had tried to storm the headquarters of the Republican Guard. He added that those killed had been supporters of former President Mohammed Morsi camped outside the building in protest at his overthrow.

A spokesman for Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood group gives a different account of the incident, saying the army opened fire on Morsi supporters at dawn and killed at least 34.

The military spokesman says there were casualties among army troops outside the building but gave no figures. State TV said at least one officer was killed.
