    Footage believed to have been filmed on Friday has emerged from the Egyptian city of Ismailiya, which appears to show protesters from the anti-coup alliance being shot at by the military.

    Unarmed demonstrators can be seen walking towards tanks and armoured personnel carriers. Some then appear to be hit while retreating from gunfire and fall to the ground.

    The scene was filmed from multiple angles on Friday in the northeastern city. A uniformed man can also be seen firing his weapon at people.
