Dozens of soldiers and police officers surround a mosque in Alexandria, Egypt's second-largest city.
Barricaded inside - over a hundred supporters of ousted President Mohamed Mursi.
They fled here after clashes with rival protesters left five dead - and now they say they are afraid to come out.
The stand-off is the latest episode in what has been a bloody weekend in Egypt.
At least 70 Mursi supporters were killed by security forces in Cairo.
The deaths come after the country's defence minister announced a crackdown on what he called "violence and terrorism."
But pro-Mursi protesters accuse security forces of slaughtering peaceful demonstrators.
More than 200 people have been killed since Egypt's army ousted Mursi - the country's first freely-elected president - earlier this month.
