Egypt Muslim Brotherhood calls for 'uprising'

- July 08, 2013 - Updated 1328 PKT - From Web Edition

CAIRO: Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood called for an "uprising" on Monday after 42 of its supporters were killed demonstrating against last week's military coup outside an elite Cairo army base.


The Brotherhood called on the international community to intervene to prevent the army's toppling of Egypt's first freely elected president Mohamed Morsi propelling the country into Syria-style civil war.


"Morsi supporters were praying while the police and army fired live rounds and tear gas at them. This led to around 42 dead and the figure is likely to rise," the Brotherhood said.


Its political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party, called for "an uprising by the great people of Egypt against those trying to steal their revolution with tanks."


It urged "the international community and international groups and all the free people of the world to intervene to stop further massacres ... and prevent a new Syria in the Arab world."


Earlier, the Egyptian armed forces said "armed terrorists" had tried to storm the headquarters of the elite Republican Guard, where the Brotherhood had been protesting, leaving one security officer dead and six critically wounded.

This is useless to ask them for help, people of the free world support freedom within their own countries, freedom elsewhere is against their interests.
