Egyptian security forces are reported to have cleared a mosque in Cairo where Muslim Brotherhood supporters had barricaded themselves in.

The confrontation at the al-Fath mosque had been going on for most of the day, with exchanges of gunfire between security forces and protesters.

The BBC's Bethany Bell in Cairo says some of the people leaving the mosque appear to have been attacked by angry crowds outside.

This unverified footage appears to show crowds of people leaving the mosque.
