A Muslim Brotherhood spokesman said that two Brotherhood members were killed and around 300 others were injured during what he said was an attack by thugs and police forces on pro-Mursi demonstrators at al-Qaed Ibrahim Mosque in Alexandria on Friday.
Supporters of legitimacy will not back down and will not be intimidated by thuggery until legitimacy is restored once more, Brotherhood spokesman Anas al-Qadi said.
A medical source said earlier that four people were killed in clashes that erupted in Alexandria today between supporters and opponents of former president Mohamed Mursi.
This assault is a clear example of what the defense minister wants the people to mandate him to do, Qadi said in a statement.
The people will never allow this, Qadi added.
A group of thugs attacked the peaceful demonstrators at the mosque but they could not break up the demonstration so armored central security forces vehicles stormed the masses and fired shots and teargas canisters, he stated.
