Mosa'ab Elshamy captured these images of violence and sadness Wednesday

at a sit-in outside the Rabaa mosque in Cairo, as government forces

clashed with Muslim Brotherhood supporters and backers of deposed

President Mohammed Morsi.

The country's health ministry

said that at least a few hundred had been killed on Wednesday in a

police raid on Morsi supporters at a Cairo protest camp and battles

nationwide. The official MENA news agency quoted a ministry spokesman

who said more than 1,000 were wounded, according to Reuters.

The nation's interim vice president, Mohamed ElBaradei, resigned after the security forces violently broke up protest camps.
