CAIRO (AP) - Egyptian troops have opened fire on supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi marching on Republican Guard facility.

Several are wounded, at least one severely with a shot to the head.

An Associated Press photographer at the scene Friday says the Republic Guard forces opened fire when protesters approached a barbed wire barrier around the facility and hung a picture of Morsi on it.

Several protesters fell wounded, including at least one severely with a bloody wound to the head.
