Islamists and soldiers reportedly fighting in the streets

Soldiers and Islamist Morsi supporters are battling at a pro-Morsi rally in Nasr City, New York Times reporter Kareem Fahim reports.

In a series of dramatic tweets, Fahim describes how soldiers approached the rally in armored vehicles, then deployed while wielding riot control gear.

Some of the pro-Morsi crowd then jumped on top of the vehicle, leading to a confrontation, and the soldiers fired in the air in an attempt to disperse the crowd.
