"Clashes erupted on Wednesday between assailants and mostly Islamist protesters gathered outside the Defence Ministry in the Egyptian capital, leaving 11 people dead and nearly 50 wounded, security and hospital officials said. ... the clashes broke out at dawn when the assailants set upon several hundred protesters who had camped out in the area since early Saturday to press their demand for the military to go. Hospital officials said nine of the 11 died of gunshot wounds to the head while two people were stabbed to death." (05/02/12)
