Give One-Day Deadline to Egyptian President
By Harold Hutchison
Protestors in Cairo threatened a movement of civil disobedience unless Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi stepped down. The protest have turned violent, with at least 16 people dying.
Earlier today, protestors stormed the headquarters of the Moslem Brotherhood, throwing Molotov cocktails at the building. The violent protests over the last two days have left 780 people injured, with over 180 of them still in hospitals. On Friday, an America was stabbed to death during one of the protests. The Egyptian military has given Morsi a 48-hour deadline to resolve the crisis.
Morsi took power in 2012 after massive protests against the regime of Hosni Mubarak. Was booting Murbarak from power a mistake?
