Pressure built toward press in Egypt after Egyptian army opened fire on pro-Morsi protesters in front of Republican Guards Headquarters in Cairo.

Egyptian army blocked the press members to leave their hotels or approach the area to prevent the incident spreading to world public opinion.

Foreign journalists insisting on reaching in front of Republican Guards Headquarters were attacked by the group called "Baltaji" while a foreign cameraman was allegedly killed.

In a fire opened on pro-Morsi protesters on Monday, 52 people were killed and more than 300 others were wounded in front of Republican Guards Headquarters in Cairo.

Muhammad al-Baltaji of Muslim Brotherhood had said, "While people were performing morning prayer in front of Republican Guards Headquarters, security forces firstly threw tear gas bombs and then opened fire on protesters."
