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.
