16 Islamists shot dead in Cairo: Muslim Brotherhood


CAIRO: Egyptian security forces shot dead 16 Islamist activists early Monday during a protest in Cairo calling for ousted president Mohamed Morsi to be reinstated, his Muslim Brotherhood said.

“Sixteen people were killed and a hundred others injured, many of them in serious condition,” the group’s spokesman Ahmed Aref told AFP. Police barricades prevented journalists from accessing the area.
