At least 3 people are reported to have died in Egypt after the Republican Guard opened fire upon protesters outside a military building.

 

Some supporters of ousted president Mohammed Morsi had broken off from a major peaceful demonstration in nearby Nasr City and gathered outside the headquarters of the Republican Guard in Cairo.

A number of protesters approached the building before shooting broke out. There are two confirmed deaths and another man is presumed dead after being severely injured.

Morsi has been rumoured to be under house arrest inside the military headquarters after his removal as leader on Wednesday.

The Republican Guard has been firing tear gas and shotgun rounds in an attempt to disperse the crowd.
