Egyptian Protesters Clash
An altercation broke out at a rally in Egypt on Friday between two
groups within the several hundred protesters after one faction began
chanting perceived insults against new Islamist President Mohamed Morsi.
The protest was organized to demand more action from the fledging
leader after his first 100 days in office. Specifically, activists were
calling for more diversity on the panel writing Egypt’s new
constitution, which they say is stacked with Islamists and members of
Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood. Brotherhood members were in the square
protesting the acquittals of 24 loyalists of former president Hosni
Mubarak on manslaughter and attempted-murder charges.
