A state of emergency has been declared in Egypt after scores of people have been killed by security forces.

The forces stormed protest camps in the capital Cairo and sources say that 95 people have been killed. However, some people believe the number is much greater than this and could even be around 150 people.

The camps that were stormed had been occupied by supporters of former president Mohammed Morsi.

Mr Morsi was removed from office by the army on 3 July after mass street protests against him. The demonstrators want Mr Morsi to be put back in power.

The state of emergency is expected to last for a month.
