3 protesters reportedly killed in pro-Morsi rallies
Armed forces opened fire during clashes with pro-Morsi protesters in Egypt today, leaving at least three of the ousted president's supporters dead in Cairo, Reuters reported.
An army spokesperson denied reports that Egyptian troops killed the Morsi supporters, claiming that soldiers at the Cairo rally were using only blank rounds and teargas to control the crowd.
Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood had earlier called for a day of protests Friday, two days after the military deposed President Mohamed Morsi and appointed an interim leader in his stead.
Tens of thousands turned out in response, across Egypt. The military has promised that demonstrations will be allowed to proceed, so long as they remain non-violent.
