The Muslim Brotherhood said on Wednesday that Egyptian security forces had killed 30 people as they started clearing out Cairo protest camps that have been demanding the reinstatement of deposed Islamist President Mohamed Mursi. Meanwhile, authorities said two members of Egypt's security forces were shot dead during the dispersal. Egypt's health ministry said there have been no deaths so far in the crackdown. At Rabaa al-Adawiya, security forces fired teargas as police helicopters circled above and army vehicles were stationed nearby. More than 300 people have already died in political violence since the army overthrew Mursi on July 3, including dozens of his supporters killed by security forces in two separate earlier incidents.
