BBC: Gunfire Heard at Cairo Mosque Siege
Gunfire has been heard at a mosque in Egypt's capital, Cairo, following a tense stand-off with barricaded Muslim Brotherhood supporters, BBC reported.
Dozens of supporters had refused to leave, fearing for their safety.
Television pictures showed security forces firing up towards the main minaret.
Meanwhile the Egyptian prime minister has proposed legally dissolving the Muslim Brotherhood.
The stand-off followed a day of bloody clashes on Friday in which 173 people died and 1,000 Brotherhood supporters were arrested.
The group has called for daily protests after a crackdown on their camps in Cairo on Wednesday left hundreds dead.
