Mideast Egypt
Egyptian security forces deploy in Tanta, Egypt, Friday, Aug. 23, 2013, where supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi clashed with residents, killing one. As the military deployed in a show of force, hundreds of Mohammed Morsi supporters took to the streets Friday in scattered rallies across the capital, but the Muslim Brotherhood failed to bring out large numbers in a sign that the movement may be waning after the arrest of the group’s senior leadership in an intense security crackdown. There were also scattered protests in other cities in Egypt, some of them descending into clashes between the demonstrators and locals who largely pelted each with rocks. In one incident in the Delta city of Tanta, police fired tear gas to stop the rival camps from clashing using birdshots and knives.(AP Photo)
