Seven killed in clashes between supporters and opponents of Mursi
Tension is growing in Egypt. Armoured military tanks and vehicles have been deployed around the Presidential Palace of Heliopolis in the centre of Cairo – the stage for protests and clashes between supporters and opponents of Mohammed Mursi. So far seven have been reported dead and hundreds hurt, including some seriously, and 330 people have been arrested. Despite calls for calm, violence and stone-throwing took place through the night in the capital, where the already serious situation seems to be at the point of exploding.
