July 27, 2013

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood said the death toll in a crackdown Saturday by the army and police on supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohammed Morsi has climbed to 120.

About 4,000 people have been injured in the violence in eastern Cairo, the group said.

The Health Ministry, however, put the death toll at 20 people, saying they were killed in clashes with police.
