Death toll rises in wake of Egyptian coup

30 killed in Egypt today as protests over President Morsi’s ouster flare up around the country. Muslim Brotherhood supporters are calling today the “Friday of Rage,” and over 10,000 have taken to the streets to protest the President’s removal two days ago by the military. The National Salvation front, which supported Morsi’s overthrow, has called for counter-protests this Sunday. source

A year after Hosni Mubarak’s fall, new round of protests in Egypt: Tear gas filled the streets and 15 were injured in protests after President Mohammed Morsi issued a decree yesterday greatly expanding his own power. The decree shields any of the president’s decisions from legal challenge until a new parliament is elected; protects the Islamist-dominated assembly, which is in the process of crafting a new constitution for the country, from being dissolved; and calls for retrials of Hosni Mubarak and other members of the old guard. 18 liberal and Christain members of the aforementioned assembly recently withdrew from the process, claiming that their input wasn’t being addressed; Morsi’s claims that his decree will only be in effect until the new constitution is drafted. Both pro- and anti-Morsi protesters clashed in Egyptian streets today, numbering in the thousands. source [1] [2] [3] (Photo credit: Reuters)
