CAIRO - Two men died from bullet wounds in central Cairo after the Egyptian army tried to disperse protesters overnight, two medical sources said on Saturday, although the army denied firing any live rounds.
The sources at a Cairo hospital said the two were among 15 who were injured by shots.
The sound of gunshots rang out across the area around Tahrir Square in Cairo overnight. Protesters said the army had fired shots in the air. It was not clear if there were other armed people in the square when the shots were fired.
