Egypt in Turmoil

At least 40 people have been killed in a shooting incident in Cairo, say officials and the Muslim Brotherhood, amid continuing unrest over the removal of President Mohammed Morsi. The Brotherhood says its members were fired on while they were holding a sit-in at a Presidential Guard barrack but the army said a "terrorist group" had tried to storm the barracks.

Mr Morsi, Egypt's first Islamist president, was ousted by the army on Wednesday after mass protests.

Dozens of people have been killed since the unrest began last weekend. Mr Morsi is believed to be held at the Presidential Guard Club, in the eastern Nasr City district of the capital.

His supporters - many of them members of the Muslim Brotherhood - have been staging a sit-in there since late last week demanding his reinstatement.

After Monday morning's violence, the hardline Salafist Nour party - which had supported Mr Morsi's removal - said it was withdrawing from talks to choose an interim prime minister, describing Monday morning's incident as a "massacre".
