Aug. 15 - Residents and workers begin cleanup efforts at the scarred site of the larger of two sit-ins that was forcibly dispersed on Wednesday. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood said on Thursday it would bring down the "military coup" but stressed it remained committed to a peaceful struggle, despite the heavy loss of life when government forces broke up its protest camps. Meanwhile, Egyptian authorities cleared remains of a sit-in by Mursi's supporters in Cairo's Nasr City neighborhood after Wednesday's deadly army raids on Mursi supporters, killing hundreds. The crackdown on Wednesday defied Western appeals for restraint and a peaceful, negotiated settlement to Egypt's political crisis following the military's removal of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi last month, prompting international statements of dismay and condemnation. Security forces struggled to clamp a lid on Egypt after the worst nationwide bloodshed in decades, although a curfew largely held in Cairo overnight.
