Egyptian soldiers open fire on a crowd of Mohamed Morsi supporters


Dozens of people were reportedly killed after the army opened fire on a crowd in Cairo. Supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi were outside the Republican Guard compound, where it's believed Mr. Morsi is being held, when the shooting started.
The army says it was simply defending itself from an attack. And judging from the reaction in the Egyptian media, most Egyptians are ready to believe the army's version of what happened. However, supporters of Mr. Morsi are calling the incident a massacre.

Listen to Reuters Egypt correspondent Alexander Dziadosz from Cairo.
