ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Police fired tear gas to disperse a crowd in Cairo on Friday (November 22) as protesters marked the passing of 100 days since the storming of two sit-ins in the capital. The Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque was the scene of one of the protest camps in support of former president Mohamed Mursi, where thousands were killed when it was stormed by security forces on August 14. Protesters were reportedly attempting to make their way back to Rabaa al-Adawiya square, in a Cairo suburb. But security forces had cordoned off the area, firing tear gas to prevent the march from reaching the square, according to a Reuters witness.
