This image made from video released by the Egyptian military on Monday, July 8, 2013, which is consistent with other AP reporting, purports to show a muzzle flash, at right, as Egyptian Army troops stand at left during a confrontation with supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi that resulted in the deaths of 51 people in Cairo, Egypt. The shootings began during a protest by about 1,000 Islamists outside the Republican Guard headquarters where Morsi, Egypt’s first freely elected leader, was detained last week. Demonstrators and members of the Brotherhood said troops descended on them and opened fire unprovoked as they finished dawn prayers. (AP Photo/Egyptian Military via AP video)
