Dozens Dead in New Egypt Clashes

The violence has stretched into a third day in Cairo as thousands filled the streets, dozens of them killed already in clashes with police. Protesters were out in droves following the Muslim Brotherhood’s call for people to march against the Egyptian military’s killing of more than 600 people. Early reports Friday said live ammunition, tear gas, bird shot, and heavy gunfire were used against the protesters. The deaths spread across the country as violence erupted both in Cairo and other cities like Alexandria.
