Egypt -- the aftermath

A quick backdrop: the army removed the elected Mursi administration on July 3, 2013 on the back of massive, sustained protests against the government; Mr Mursi’s supporters, mostly Islamists, started protests thereafter congregating in two principal localities in Cairo; both sites eventually became protest camps; both were stormed yesterday by security forces resulting in hundreds of deaths.
