Dozens die in violence in Egypt

CAIRO

Security forces and armed men clashed with supporters of Egypt’s ousted president early Saturday, killing at least 65 people in mayhem that underscored an increasingly heavy hand against protests demanding Mohammed Morsi’s return to office.

In chaotic scenes, pools of blood stained the floor and bodies were lined up under white sheets in a makeshift hospital near the site of the battles in eastern Cairo.

Doctors struggled to cope with the flood of dozens of wounded, many with gunshots to the head or chest.

It was the deadliest single outbreak of violence since the military ousted Morsi on July 3 and one of the deadliest in 21/2 years of turmoil in Egypt.

It was not immediately clear if all the 65 killed were protesters or if residents who joined the fight against the march were among the dead.

The Brotherhood said that 66 Morsi supporters were killed in the Cairo violence.
