Egypt poised for renewed protests
2013-08-16 09:05:56 | (0 Comments)
The Egyptian capital Cairo is poised for renewed protests as supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi call for marches after Friday prayers.
It comes two days after authorities broke up Muslim Brotherhood protest camps in the Egyptian capital with the loss of at least 638 lives.
Egypt is in a state of emergency and police have been authorised to use live ammunition in self-defence.
Egypt's interim leaders have criticised remarks by President Obama, condemning the government's actions and cancelling joint military exercises.
In a statement today, the Egyptian presidency said Obama's words could encourage armed groups.
