Aug. 16 - Dozens die in Egyptian bloodbath on Islamists' ''Day of Rage,'' as Brotherhood announces more protests. Deborah Lutterbeck reports.
The casket holding the daughter of a senior leader of the Muslim Brotherhood is carried into a mosque in Cairo Friday. She is among hundreds killed Wednesday when the government cracked down on protests. Those protests began again Friday on the day the Brotherhood is calling a Day of Rage. The protests descend into a bloodbath with around 50 people killed in Cairo alone. Clashes erupt in other parts of the country, with dozens more killed in the conflict. Signaling displeasure at the worst bloodshed in Egypt in generations, U.S. President Barack Obama said Thursday that normal cooperation with Cairo could not continue as he canceled a round of military exercises with Egypt next month. The European Union asked its members to consider "appropriate measures" it could take in reaction to the violence, As dusk comes, streets are quiet in Cairo as a curfew is imposed. But the Brotherhood has no plan to go gently, they have announced a further week of nationwide protests.
