Antall drepte utenfor Republikanergardens hovedkvarter er kommet opp i 43. Den ene offiseren skal ha blitt drept av sine egne. Forklaringen om at demonstrantene angrep først har ikke særlig solid belegg.

Film av demonstranter med våpen var tatt opp etter at skytingen begynte.

At least 43 civilians were killed, all or most of them shot, and more than 300 wounded, doctors and health officials said. Security officials said one police officer died as well.

The attack marked a sharp escalation in the confrontation between the generals who forced out the president and his Islamist supporters in the streets.

Dozens of Islamists who had gathered to hold a vigil for Mr. Morsi denied there was any provocation for the attack. Two bystanders who had supported Mr. Morsi’s ouster said that the demonstrators were unarmed and ran in terror as the attack began.
