Egyptian Protesters Defy Curfew on ‘Friday of Anger’ [Photo]
Thousands of pro-Morsi protesters rallied on Friday at Cairo’s Ramses Square defying a government imposed curfew. Tensions ran high as the government sent out a severe warning saying it would “deal firmly” with those who breached the curfew and protesters who promised a “Friday of anger.” The fear among people is that these latest conflicts would erupt into another wave of violence as the one on Wednesday where hundreds of people lost their lives. The interim government credits the the Muslim Brotherhood, of which ousted President Morsi was a leader, for Wednesday’s attacks. Essam Elerian, formerly a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, warned that protests will continue until Morsi is returned to office.
