Islamist protests descended into a bloodbath across Egypt on Friday, with more than 100 killed on a "Day of Rage" called by followers of ousted President Mohamed Morsi to denounce a crackdown by the army-backed government.

Around 50 people died in Cairo alone with dozens more killed in the other parts of the country.

Automatic gunfire echoed around the capital throughout Friday afternoon, army helicopters swooped over the roof tops and at least one office block was set ablaze, lighting up the night sky long after the violence had subsided.

Undeterred by the bloodshed in which about 700 have been killed since Wednesday, the Brotherhood urged its supporters back onto the streets to denounce the overthrow of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi and a crackdown on his followers.

A series of daily rallies have been announced over the next six days, starting on Saturday.

Here are some photos from the ‘Day of Rage’ in Egypt.
