Accusations and bullets fly in Cairo amid unrest

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has called for an uprising against the army, after at least 51 people were shot dead at a demonstration in Cairo.

The army claims it opened fire because "a terrorist group" tried to storm the military compound, where former president Mohamed Morsi is believed to be held.

The Morsi supporters said they were shot during morning prayers.
