Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood Marches Through Cairo Suburb [Photo]
Clashes erupted in several Egyptian cities on Friday with at least 5 dead after supporters of deposed President President Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood took to the streets to demand the end of army-backed rule. These latest demonstrations are the most ambitious attempt by the Brotherhood to press its demands since Egypt’s Aug. 14 state of emergency declaration, following the outbreak of violence that resulted from the removal of two pro-Morsi camps in Cairo. These most recent demonstrations come just a day after the European Union’s foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton held talks in Cairo with top government officials, Sisi, and two Brotherhood politicians, urging both sides to pursue reconciliation. It seems very unlikely that either side was swayed by her call for peace.
