The Muslim Brotherhood has called for an “uprising” in Egypt after dozens of its supporters were shot dead in Cairo early Monday as they staged a sit-in in support of Egypt’s deposed president, Mohamed Morsi. 

According to the Brotherhood, at least 53 people, including children, were killed outside the Republican Guard military compound in what the group is calling a “massacre.”
