The shooting of at least 51 people outside the Cairo barracks where Egypt's ousted president is thought to be detained hasn't deterred protests by his supporters nearby. The military says it responded when security forces came under attack from Mohamed Mursi's supporters. Mursi's backers the Muslim Brotherhood is rejecting the military's version of events. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) BROTHERHOOD LEADER SALAH EL DEEN SULTAN SAYING: "The army statement is false. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, between 6 and 10, we numbered more than half a million, so if we wanted to attack we would have done it at that time - not at dawn when the protesters come back to their tents at Rabaa Adawiya, so that is not true." The Muslim Brotherhood and its Islamist allies have called for more protests on Tuesday. The Brotherhood is urging people to rise up against the army whom they accuse of a military coup.
