Mursi supporter's graphic video reportedly shows heavy gunfire at protesters
The video shot by a Morsi supporter and authenticated by The Associated Press based on landmarks and reporting from Wednesday’s crackdown – shows armoured personnel carriers driving protesters back from an area near the main sit-in as continuous volleys of automatic gunfire ring out. In the footage, the crowd retreats after throwing stones at the approaching vehicles, leaving several bloodied men motionless on the ground. Several shout “God is great” as they take cover, and a few attempt to evacuate a bloodied, unconscious man but are forced to hide on the ground and behind a wall.
