Egypt: Security forces storm mosque

CAIRO (AP) — Witnesses say that Egyptian security forces have stormed a Cairo mosque after firing tear gas at hundreds of Islamists supporters of the country's ousted president barricaded inside.

Local journalist Shaimaa Awad told The Associated Press on Saturday that security forces rounded up protesters inside al-Fatah mosque, located in Cairo's central Ramses Square.

The sound of gunfire could be heard in the background.

Egypt's official news agency MENA reported that gunmen opened fire on security forces from the mosque's minaret. Local television stations broadcast live footage of soldiers firing assault rifles at the minaret.

The mosque served as a field hospital and morgue following clashes Friday in the area. The protesters barricaded themselves inside overnight out of fears of being beaten by vigilante mobs or being arrested by authorities.

LONDON (AP) — British police say army bomb disposal experts have been called to a mosque after a suspicious item was found.

West Midlands Police say that around 40 homes near the Aisha Mosque and Islamic Center in Walsall, near the central England city of Birmingham, were evacuated overnight as a precautionary measure.

The force said officers were alerted to the suspicious item on Saturday night.

Investigators were taking evidence outside the mosque Sunday, and parts of the nearby area were cordoned off.

It was not immediately clear what the item was or what potential dangers it posed. No injuries were reported.

Mosques and Muslim communities in Britain have been on alert since a British soldier was killed in London in May.
