CAIRO (AP) — Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood says a son of its spiritual leader was killed during fierce clashes in downtown Cairo, as hundreds of Islamists supporters of the country's ousted president remained barricaded inside a mosque.
The group's political arm said on its official website Saturday that Mohammed Badei's son Ammar was killed Friday. That's when the Muslim Brotherhood took to the streets in a "Day of Rage" — ignited by anger at security forces over clearing two sit-in camps earlier in the week, leaving hundreds dead.
Meanwhile, hundreds remained inside the al-Fatah mosque in Cairo on Saturday morning after barricading themselves inside overnight. A Muslim cleric there said there were ongoing negotiations with the military to have protesters safely leave.
