State of Emergency Declared in Egypt

Egypt security forces stormed two huge Cairo protests by supporters of Egypt’s ousted president Mohammad Mursi, prompting the resignation of interim vice president Mohammad Al Baradei and sparking nationwide violence, which left at least 149 people dead. The crackdown was followed by the declaration of a month-long state of emergency.
Egypt’s crackdown on supporters of ousted president Mursi triggered widespread condemnation as the international community reacted with alarm to what some termed a “massacre”. US Secretary of State Kerry says US strongly condemns violence, bloodshed in Egypt, says it dealt serious blow to reconciliation. The United Nations, the United States, Britain, France, Iran, Qatar and Turkey strongly denounced the use of force by the military-backed interim government to clear two protest camps in Cairo.
