Chaos, Bloodshed Reign In Egypt

August 14, 2013 by  

Chaos, Bloodshed Reign In Egypt, Egypt’s police and military stormed a pair of Muslim Brotherhood protest sites here early Wednesday morning, leaving scores of protesters dead and many more wounded as violence threatened to spill across the city.

While clashes at one Muslim Brotherhood protest site extended into their tenth hour, Egypt’s military-backed government declared a one-month state of emergency. Across the city there were reports of small gun battles, and churches and government buildings being burned or seized. Vigilante and neighborhood watch groups, once a fixture of post-revolutionary Cairo, were formed late in the day.

The exact number killed in the storming of the sites — the Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque in Nasr City and another one in Nahda Square — is unknown, but the Ministry of Health has reported a death toll of more than 200. More than 1,400 people have been injured, according to Reuters.
