Egyptian Protests Dwindle

In Egypt, thousands are still marching in protest of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, but numbers have thinned significantly since the brutal crackdown two weeks ago. On Friday, six people were reportedly killed in clashes, but the Egyptian networks are broadcasting quiet streets, and officials aren't releasing total casualty or arrest records. After the bloodshed in mid-August, when the death toll hit 900, Egypt's Ministry of Health stopped publishing the casualty count. Estimates on the number of people detained range widely, from 1,000 to 8,000.
