Concern Grows For Stability In Egypt After Clashes Leave Many Dead And Injured

An Egyptian man places blocks of ice on the body of a supporter of deposed Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, killed during a violent crackdown by Egyptian Security Forces on pro-Morsi sit-in demonstrations the day before, at the al-Iman Mosque in Nasr City on August 15, 2013 in Cairo, Egypt. An unknown number of pro-Morsi protesters were killed in Egypt’s capital August 14th as Egyptian Security Forces undertook a planned operation to clear Morsi supporters from two sit-in demonstrations in Cairo where they have camped for over one month.

Via Meadia has been following this week’s events in Egypt closely: Read our coverage of the crackdown here, and our analysis of ordinary Egyptians’ response to the violence here. Look here for a broader discussion of how America’s ideas about the spread of liberal democracy are influencing our approach to the Middle East.
