Egyptian Freedom and Justice Party spokesman Murad Ali announced the death toll was 1,000, number of injured people were 10,000 in dispersal of pro-Morsi sit-ins across country on Wednesday.

Ali said, Egyptian security forces intervened in pro-democracy protesters with gas bombs and guns in Nahda Square and the Rabaa al-Adawiya Square on Wednesday.

Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon has strongly condemned Wednesday’s police assault on civilians in Egypt in a violent move to disperse the two main pro-Morsi sit-ins in capital Cairo’s Rabaa al-Adawiya Square and Giza’s Nahda Square.

Ali announced the death toll was 1,000, number of injured people were 10,000 in dispersal of pro-Morsi sit-ins across country on Wednesday.

On the other side, Egypt’s health ministry claimed that death toll nationwide was 149, and 1,403 were injured, in Wednesday’s police assault on pro-Morsi supporters.

Supporters of Morsi have been occupying Nahda Square and the Rabaa al-Adawiya Square since Morsi was ousted on July 3, demanding his reinstatement.
