The Facebook page of Egypt’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) - the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood - has posted old photos of children killed in Syria as photos of children killed on Monday.
More than 50 people were killed early on Monday during a sit-in in front of Egypt's Republican Guard headquarters. The sit-in was organized by Islamist supporters of ousted president Mohammad Mursi.
The Muslim Brotherhood claimed the army opened fire at the protesters while they were holding dawn prayers. The military denied this story, showing footage of armed gunmen mixed with protesters shooting at the armed forces.
The army said the Brotherhood’s claims were part of an Islamist media campaign to tarnish the respected military institution’s image.
The Muslim Brotherhood insisted on blaming the armed forces and has called for a mass protest on Tuesday.
The Islamist movement has been holding rallies for about two weeks to protest against the military’s decision to overthrow Mursi, a move it describes as a coup d'état but that many Egyptians say is a revolution against an autocratic rule of former president Mursi.
