White House condemns violence in Egypt
The Obama administration is criticizing the latest crackdown in Egypt, saying that violence will only make it harder to promote stability and democracy.
Egypt's capital descended into a chaotic bloodbath after security forces moved in on protest camps set up by supporters of ousted president Mohammed Morsi, sparking deadly violence. A nationwide state of emergency was declared as government forces tried to maintain order.
Egyptian security forces killed at least 29 people when they moved in to clear a camp of protesters demanding the reinstatement of deposed President Mohamed Mursi, in a dramatic dawn swoop aimed at ending a six-week standoff in Cairo.
