10 dead in Cairo square violence - doctors at scene
CAIRO (Reuters) - Ten people have been killed during violent clashes between pro- and anti-government supporters in a Cairo square, a doctor at makeshift clinic treating the casualties said on Thursday.
Dr Sayyid Hussein said the makeshift clinic, operating out of a mosque near the square, had registered 10 deaths.
"An hour an a half ago, two people were rushed to me with gunshot wounds to the head. They were gasping and died. A third case followed, which was very severe, but that case was taken to hospital by ambulance," said another doctor, Yasser Tibi, at a field station of the makeshift clinic.
The health minister earlier said six had been killed and more than 800 wounded.
