EGYPT'S regime committed "crimes against humanity" while crushing protests against last year's coup to overthrow Mohammed Morsi, according to lawyers seeking an investigation by the International Criminal Court.

The army and police responded by forcibly clearing them in an operation claiming at least 1,120 lives.
