Military funeral of the Rafah border ...
Nasr City, Egypt

Soldiers carry the body of one of the victims at
the funeral of the 16 Egyptian security officers who were killed by unknown gunmen Sunday afternoon.
The military funeral began today after noon prayers. A large number of people raised their shoes in Prime Minister Hesham Kandil's face, his car was vandalized, and they chanted against him. The car was damaged, and the minister’s guards were forced to take a different street to avoid further assaults.
President Mohamed Morsi was scheduled to attend the funeral but did not appear.

Several other figures attended, including Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, members of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, and Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar Ahmed al-Tayyeb, as well as former presidential candidates Hamdeen Sabbahi, Abdel Moneim Abouel Fotouh, and Amr Moussa. The Salafi Nour Party and the Salafi Dawah were also represented at the funeral.

The funeral prayers were performed at Aal Rashdan Mosque in Nasr City.

Morsi was also scheduled to visit the seven guards who were injured in the attack afterward.

Ambulances transported coffins of soldiers to the Unknown Soldier Memorial for the military funeral.
