WARNING GRAPHIC VIDEO: Hundreds are dead and many more wounded in what’s being called the deadliest day in Egypt since the 2011 revolution.

The Egyptian military is moving against the Muslim Brotherhood and moving in to clear protestors who support ousted president Muhammed Morsy.

On November 22, 2012, tens of thousands of protesters started to demonstrate against president Mohamed Morsi,after Morsi’s government issued a temporary constitutional declaration that in effect granted the president unlimited powers. The demonstrations were organized by Egyptian opposition organizations and individuals, mainly liberals, leftists, secularists and christians. Violent clashes have been ongoing since the initial protests.

On June 30, 2013, mass protests with millions of protestors erupted across Egypt — especially in Cairo and Heliopolis — calling for President Morsi’s resignation, following severe fuel shortages and electricity outages.

On July 3, 2013 after a warning 48 hours earlier to intervene, the Egyptian Army came out with a statement announcing the end of Mohammed Morsi’s presidency. The military also announced that the constitution was suspended, that another presidential election would be held, that the chief justice of the constitutional court, Adly Mansour, is now head of the government, and that a transitional technocratic government would be formed until the election. Morsi was put under house arrest and Muslim Brotherhood leaders were arrested.

Morsi supporters then protested in the Nasr City district of Cairo, and in Alexandria, Luxor, Damanhour and Suez. The Egyptian army cracked down on public media and shut down several news outlets, including al-Jazeera, that it deemed pro-Morsi. Hundreds of pro-Morsi protestors have been killed, while the Egyptian army denied using lethal ammunition.

Egyptian anti-Morsi groups, such as the Tamarod have accused the United States of backing Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi supporters are accused of burning Coptic Christian businesses and property throughout the country. At least 20 incidents of burning of churches and attacks on Christian institutions are known, based on unconfirmed reports on Twitter from Coptic leaders and organizations following the outbreak of anti-Christian violence in Egypt.

A majority of Egyptian citizens now protest the United States and President Barack Obama for supporting Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Muslim Brotherhood has pledged to “bring down Egypt’s military coup” using peaceful means – as the number of people killed in clashes reportedly rose to more than 340. The group, which backs ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, made the statement as a month-long state of emergency was declared in the country.

Daily Beast reporter Mike Giglio tells CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that Egyptian police beat him and took his laptop, and demanded his password.

Daily Beast reporter Mike Giglio reports that he was at the front of the police lines for about 90 minutes when police decided they didn’t want journalists there any more. Giglio says he was beaten when he would not give authorities his password. He eventually gave up his password. Egyptian police took his laptop, wallet, and cell phone.

Giglio says that western journalists are hated by police because they are not exclusively carrying the message of state media and local media.
