Egypt’s provisional president orders probe of Army-MB clash

The clash left 51 Brotherhood protesters dead and 322 injured at the Republican Guards Club in Cairo, while the army reports one officer killed and seven injured. Conflicting claims emerge about how it started: The army said “armed terrorists” tried to storm the compound where the deposed president Morsi is held and attacked security forces. The Brotherhood accused the army of firing tear gas and gunshots at peaceful protesters performing dawn prayers. They are now calling for an uprising. DEBKAfile: The probe ordered by provisional president Adli Mansour is unlikely to curb the rising violence in Cairo and the rest of the country.
