Egyptian Security Forces Clear Mostly Peaceful Morsi Protestors

The Telegraph has live coverage the quotes here are in reverse chronological order.Telegraph:

07.17 The Muslim Brotherhood is now reporting that 30 of its protesters have been killed. There was no independent verification of the death toll. Gehad El-Haddad, Brotherhood spokesman, said on Twitter:

07.15 Canisters of tear gas rained down on tents set up by the protesters at one end of the Rabaa al-Adawiya camp as police vehicles, one blaring a siren, advanced on the protesters. A security official told AFP that similar steps were being taken at the Nahda square camp:

It is the beginning of the operation to disperse the protesters.
07.10 BST London (08.10 EET Cairo) Good morning and welcome to our rolling coverage as Egyptian security forces move in to clear protest camps of Mohammed Morsi supporters.

Meanwhile the Muslim Brotherhood propaganda machine is in full swing. Putting out fake reports of dead burnt bodies.

Its not that there aren't dead burnt bodies, there are.

However the Morsi supporters have stated they wanted to be martyred, probably for the 72 virgins reward thingy.

Also the protesters were not totally 100% peaceful. Just mostly peaceful if you catch my drift.
