Tensions in Cairo after protest deaths
Thousands of Egyptian Coptic Christians have gathered for the funerals of protesters killed during clashes with security forces in Cairo on Sunday.
Many mourners expressed anger at the army, which they blame for the deaths.
The protesters say they were attacked by thugs before the security forces fired on them and drove military vehicles into the crowds.
The ruling military council has ordered a swift inquiry into the violence, in which 25 people died.
