At least 124 people were reportedly killed on Wednesday as Egyptian police moved in on protest camps in support of deposed President Mohammed Mursi, according to an AFP tally.
Six members of the Egyptian security forces were killed, state TV reported, quoting the Interior Ministry, adding that a further 66 members of the security forces had been wounded.
The state news agency said security forces had started implementing a phased plan to disperse the protesters, which is almost certain to deepen political turmoil in Egypt. The operation began shortly after dawn when security forces surrounded the sprawling Rabaa al-Adawiya camp in east Cairo and a similar one at Nahda square, in the centre of the capital.
