Riot Like An Egyptian

Violence flares in Egypt as rival protests approach 30 June showdown

Fierce clashes between supporters and opponents of President Mohamed Morsi continue to rage into the night in Egypt’s coastal city of Alexandria, following a day of rival protests nationwide that left one Egyptian and one US citizen dead.

An American man – a photographer who had gone to the Alexandria protests to film the event – was stabbed to death, while an Egyptian man succumbed to injuries sustained from birdshot.
