Egypt unrest: Cairo resident describes 'complete terror'

A woman who lives near one of the Cairo protest camps occupied by supporters of deposed president Mohammed Morsi has been describing the moment that security forces moved in to break them up.

The Muslim Brotherhood say more than 100 have died in the operation, which began on Wednesday morning, but the authorities put the death toll much lower.

Speaking to the BBC, local resident Rehaam Romero said that the violence had spread to other parts of the capital and described scenes of "complete terror".
