On Saturday, funerals for the victims of Manial clashes took place in Salah El-Din mosque in Manial, Cairo.
Five Manial residents were shot dead on Friday after ousted President Mohamed Morsi’s supporters fired live ammunition and bird shots at them, claimed residents.
Manial residents claimed they were trying to prevent Morsi supporters from reaching Tahrir Square.
Ahmed Abdel Moneim, a Manial resident, said that he was shot in his leg as he was trying to protect another man.
“We were trying to prevent a massacre from happening in Tahrir square,” claimed Ahmed Abdel Moneim.
Shattered glass and rocks were scattered on the ground by both Morsi supporters and residents of Manial.
