Morsi Opponents Reportedly Thrown To Their Deaths In Egypt Clashes (GRAPHIC VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The disturbing footage above from Alexandria, Egypt, shows opponents of ousted President Mohammed Morsi being thrown from a water tower, according to the Associated Press. Two reportedly died from the fall.

According to The Telegraph, the father of victim Hamada Badr said his son was stabbed prior to being thrown.

A week ago, the Egyptian army overthrew Morsi, and clashes between supporters and opponents continue. The Telegraph reports that this act of violence may have occurred after Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badie's speech last Friday, which was followed by clashes between the two groups resulting in the deaths of more than 30 people.
