Thousands of both Morsi supporters and opponents are attacking each other with petrol bombs, stones and sticks outside the president’s residence in Cairo. Gunshots can be heard, reporters say describing the scene as “a disaster zone.”

The volatile situation has led to the resignation of at least three more Morsi’s advisors. Dr. Saif Al Deen Abdel Fatah, who is regarded as one of the most credible and moderate advisors, is reportedly among them.
