CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian military officials say gunmen killed at least five supporters of the former president when people tried to storm a military building in Cairo.
The official, who declined to be named because he was not authorized to brief reporters, said a group had tried to storm the headquarters of the Republican Guard. He added that those killed had been supporters of former President Mohammed Morsi camped outside the building in protest at his overthrow.
A spokesman for Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood group gives a different account of the incident, saying the army opened fire on Morsi supporters at dawn and killed at least 34.
The military spokesman says there were casualties among army troops outside the building but gave no figures. State TV said at least one officer was killed.
CAIRO (AP) — Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood is calling for protests to denounce the military's toppling of President Mohammed Morsi, while opponents of the ousted Islamist leader also are urging supporters to take to the streets for mass rallies.
The calls for competing rallies have renewed fears of street violence, two days after clashes between the rival camps left at least 36 people dead and more than 1,000 wounded.
The Brotherhood, which helped propel Morsi to power as Egypt's first democratically elected leader, has denounced the military takeover as a "coup," and is demanding he be reinstated.
The collection of liberal, secular and youth groups that spearheaded the campaign to oust Morsi, meanwhile, have called for a mass rally in Cairo's Tahrir Square later Sunday to support the country's new interim government.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — South Korea says two veteran pilots were flying the Asiana Airlines jetliner when it crashed while landing at San Francisco's airport, killing two people.
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport says four pilots were aboard and rotated in two-person shifts during the flight from Asia.
Officials say more than 300 passengers and crew members were aboard when it slammed into the runway and caught fire. The two dead were found outside the wreckage. Another 182 people were taken to hospitals, many with minor injuries.
San Francisco's fire chief says authorities have accounted for all passengers and crew members who were aboard the jetliner.
The flight originated in Shanghai, China with a stopover in Seoul.
National Transportation Safety Board investigators are on the scene.
