Morsi supporters seek answers over deaths

Egyptians backing ousted president Mohamed Morsi say peaceful protesters were attacked on Friday, when three women died.

    Supporters of Egypt's deposed president Mohamed Morsi are demanding answers after three protesters were killed on Friday.

    The women were shot dead in Mansoura after a rally calling for the reinstatement of Morsi turned violent.

    Backers of the former leader call it a deliberate attack on peaceful demonstrators and some women protesters plan a march on the defence ministry on Sunday.
