CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian security forces shot dead dozens of supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohamed Mursi on Saturday, witnesses said, days after the army chief called for a popular mandate to wipe out "violence and terrorism".
Men in helmets and black police fatigues fired on crowds gathered before dawn on the fringes of a round-the-clock sit-in near a mosque in northeast Cairo, Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood said.
"They are not shooting to wound, they are shooting to kill," said Brotherhood spokesman Gehad El-Haddad. "The bullet wounds are in the head and chest."
A Muslim Brotherhood website said 120 people had been killed and some 4,500 injured. A Reuters reporter counted 36 bodies at one morgue, while health officials said there were a further 21 corspes in two nearby hospitals.

Can we really know that most to all of these protesters are violent? If they're not violent, then shooting isn't justified.
As for our tax dollars, I really wish we'd stop. Whahhhhhh! We're in a deficit. What are we going to do? We need to stop wasting money on helping the poor people.
Uh no, we need to stop wasting money on helping anti-semitic countries that usually have an unethical government.
