The Egypt Crisis

Egypt

In early July, Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood was overthrown and an interim government put in place.  However, supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood took to the streets to protest the overthrow of Morsi.  While there were clashes between the new government and Morsi’s supporters before, August 14 has marked a turning point.  The government vowed to tear down the protest camps and they have kept to their word, killing over 700 people in the process.
