Egypt soldiers enter mosque refuge of Islamist protesters

Aug. 17, 2013 9:52 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 17, 2013 8:20 P.M.)
CAIRO (AFP) -- Egyptian soldiers entered a Cairo mosque on Saturday where Islamist protesters had holed up overnight after a day of deadly clashes, live television pictures showed.

The private Egyptian ONTV Live television channel showed the soldiers entering, while Al-Jazeera's Egypt affiliate streamed footage on its website of the soldiers inside the mosque.

They appeared to be negotiating with the protesters, attempting to persuade them to leave.

A protester inside the mosque told AFP by telephone that they were demanding they not be arrested, or attacked by hostile civilians who appeared to be gathered outside the mosque.
