    The turmoil in Egypt continued overnight on Friday and into Saturday as more people were injured and killed in ongoing protests. Doctors in Cairo say over 100 protesters supporting ousted President Morsi were killed in the city and that over 1,500 were hurt. The state health ministry disputes the numbers, putting the death toll at 38. Protests were held by both sides overnight, with the anti-Morsi side in Tahrir Square and tens of thousands of pro-Morsi activists staging a sit-in at a mosque. The interior minister vowed to end the protests on Saturday through legal means, although nothing has happened as yet.
