(Newser) – At least three people are dead in Cairo after security forces opened fire on supporters of the freshly-ousted president Mohamed Morsi, security sources tell Reuters. While an army spokesman says the military did not use live rounds, the BBC reports that forces fired at a crowd of Muslim Brotherhood supporters as they gathered outside the Republican Guard barracks where Morsi is being held.

Other violent clashes have been reported in cities across Egypt as thousands of Morsi supporters gathered to protest the military coup that removed the country's first democratically elected leader from power. Across the country, 10 people have been killed and 210 wounded in the clashes, the AP reports, citing a Health Ministry official. Earlier, the army had said it would support the planned rally, citing the rights of "peaceful protest and freedom of expression." Click for more of today's developments.

Don't worry Egypt, Odumbo will continue to pay you islamist terrorists off with billions of our dollars while our own country is crumbling in its infrastructure, we have starving children who go to bed hungry every night, we have Americans dying daily because of lack of food, we have a large illiterate population here but have no fear, the stupid USA will continue to pay off the middle east while America goes to hell.

If Obama hadn't put one of his Muslim Brotherhood stooges up for their elections with promises of gazillions of dollars none of this would have happened. Instead he bought his way into their gov't in the guise of "democracy" and armed the terrorists. Good Egyptians don't want Shariah law, and they never did. Muslims do like to rape women though, and under Shariah Law it takes 6 loyal Muslim men as eyewitnesses for a woman to convict a man of rape. All of them standing around jerking off, I guess.
