Millions of opposition protesters hit the streets across Egypt to call for the ouster of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi on Sunday (which marked the end of the Muslim Brothers candidate’s first year in office), with violence resulting in at least seven dead, A Ahram reports.

Hundreds of thousands of anti-Morsi protesters gathered outside the presidential palace in Cairo’s Heliopolis district and in Tahrir Square, site of the 2011 revolution.

The anti-Morsi Rebel campaign has called on all political parties and movements to leave their banners at home and unite, raising a sea of Egyptian flags. Protesters carried red cards reading “Leave” in a symbolic gesture calling for the president’s ouster.

At least three anti-Morsi protesters were killed in Upper Egypt’s Assiut city, according to the chief of security there. The anti-Morsi protest of thousands was attacked by unknown assailants as they were marching near the Freedom and Justice Party’s headquarters.

According to Al-Ahram, one of the slain, Abanob Atef, was shot in the head by gunmen on a motorcycle.

A 25-year-old protester was killed in Beni Suef when unknown assailants opened fire on an anti-Morsi protest.

In Fayoum, an 18-year-old was killed after being shot in the head in clashes between supporters and opponents of Morsi.

At least two were killed when the main headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo came under attack in the evening.

Hundreds of people throwing gasoline bombs and rocks attacked the building, which caught fire as guards and Brotherhood members inside the building exchanged gunfire with attackers.

Local TV channels showed civilians being carried away with bloody head wounds, according to Al Ahram.
