Clashes in Cairo and its suburbs have killed at least 989 people since security forces launched an August 14th  crackdown on supporters of ousted Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi.

On August 14th itself, 627 people were killed when security forces stormed Cairo's Rabaa al-Adawiya square to disperse a sit-in by Morsi's backers.

The protesters had been calling for Morsi's return after he was overthrown and imprisoned by the army on July 3rd

Dozens more were also killed on August 14 in the capital's Nahda Square when police and troops dispersed a similar sit-in.
