Nasr City, Egypt - Hundreds of people died as security forces launched a crackdown on supporters of deposed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi. 

The assault, which began on Wednesday morning, led to bloody clashes around Rabaa al-Adawiya, a centre for demonstrations in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

Injured protesters tried to treat their wounds at make-shift clinics set up by demonstrators. The government has declared a state of emergency and the violence is expected to continue.
