A judicial source has stated that the general prosecution is beginning the interrogation of nearly 650 suspects over Monday's clashes at the Republican Guard Headquarters in Cairo.

A team of 60 investigators from the prosecution, supervised by Judge Mostafa Khater, the district attorney of East Cairo, is investigating the clashes.

Suspects are currently facing the following charges: murder, intended murder, thuggery, unlicensed firearms, ammunitions and weapons possession and undermining general security for terrorist intentions.

Immediately following the clashes on Monday, interim President Adly Mansour ordered an investigation into the events.

Following a five-day Muslim Brotherhood-led sit-in at the Republican Guard Headquarters (where deposed president Mohamed Morsi is believed to be held), hundreds of civilians were injured by the Egyptian Army, with 51 fatalities. One officer is reported dead, with 42 soldiers also reported injured. Events leading up to this are unclear, with both sides claiming the other instigated a response.

The Coup Establishment of Shameless Lies
Is there any record of these 650 interrogations for a researcher to check? ... the names and other particulars of the interrogated? The names and other particulars of the interrogators?? The questions asked and the responses? Why is it so easy in some societies to tell big lies and never be challenged ???
