Egypt army deploys tanks near Presidential palace; 5 killed

Cairo, Dec 6:  Egypt’s army today deployed tanks outside the Presidential Palace here after overnight clashes between supporters and opponents of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi killed at least five people and left nearly 450 injured as rampaging mobs targeted offices of the Muslim Brotherhood.



Tanks and armoured cars were positioned outside the Presidential Palace as hundreds of Morsi’s supporters chanted slogans in his favour, amid growing unrest over a controversial draft Constitution.
