At least three people were killed in Egypt Thursday as police quashed attempts by supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohammad Morsi to commemorate the first anniversary of a brutal Cairo crackdown.On August 14, 2013, after then army chief and now President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi had removed Egypt's first freely elected president, the security forces set upon thousands of Morsi supporters at protest camps in Rabaa al-Adawiya and Nahda squares, leaving hundreds of people dead.Attempts by Morsi supporters to demonstrate were swiftly suppressed Thursday, reflecting their dwindling ability to stage protests amid violent repression that has left more than 1,400 people dead since Morsi's overthrow in July 2013 .Sisi deposed Morsi after millions of people took to the streets demanding the Islamist's resignation just one year into his rule.
