Unrest Continues in Egypt

Unrest Continues in Egypt

Twelve people have died in Alexandria and three in Cairo in clashes between supporters and opponents of the ousted President Mohammed Morsi. The violence came after three pro-Morsi demonstrators were killed by security forces in another part of the capital. Troops later restored calm in Cairo, but nationwide violence left some 26 dead and 318 injured, officials said. The army removed Mr. Morsi from power on Wednesday after millions of people protested over his leadership. Mr. Morsi, Egypt's first freely elected leader, is in detention, as are some senior figures in the Brotherhood: early this morning, state media reported the Brotherhood's deputy leader Khairat el-Shater had been arrested at his Cairo home on suspicion of incitement to violence.

The Tamarod movement - which organised recent anti-Morsi protests - accused the ousted president of pursuing an Islamist agenda against the wishes of most Egyptians, and of failing to tackle economic problems. The US State Department issued a condemnation of Friday's violence and called for all leaders to put a stop to any further aggression. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has also expressed alarm at the violence, saying that it was for the people of Egypt to determine the way forward - and all people, including women, needed to be part of that process.
