Egyptian security forces have surrounded Al-Fath mosque in Cairo’s Ramses Square, amid a stand-off with barricaded Muslim Brotherhood supporters. An estimated 1,500 people are reported to be trapped inside the mosque. The tense stand-off at the mosque came after bloody clashes killed more 100 people nationwide Friday, according to Reuters, and resulted in the arrest of more than 1,000 alleged supporters of Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood.
