|Unknown attackers have killed at least eight Egyptian protesters and wounded 50 on a fourth day of clashes in Cairo. Some reports give the number of dead as 20, and say army troops have been deployed to the area to end the violence... Twitter users call the clashes a massacre: 'Let the world know that a massacre happened last night in #Abassiya #Egypt #MOD,' writes @Amir_Elshenawy. 'Thugs have been attacking sit-in for 4 days in a row, using molotovs, shotguns, swords, bombs and live ammo. Now teargas being used,' @JonathanRashad says... This makes activists believe the assailants operate with the blessing of the military or police, and that they may even be on their payroll. 'Plain clothed thugs shooting at protesters with live bullets and tear gas, for sure they are working for SCAF,' @Gsquare86 wrote when the attack began several hours ago.|
