Hundreds Killed In Overnight Cairo “Massacre” As 30 Million Take To The Streets
by Tyler Durden
Nearly a month after the Egyptian military coup (that wasn’t a coup according to the US), the celebrations over the democratic overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood’s president Morsi (according to John Kerry) continue with hundreds of protesters killed and injured in the latest overnight violent breakout. The reports are obviously conflicting with the Muslim Brotherhood claiming 120 were killed in violent protests with police near Rabaa Al-Adawiya Mosque, describing events as a “massacre”, alternatively the government’s Ministry of Health says only 38 dead arrived at hospitals so far. The tragic deaths were a logical outcome of protests which according to the head of Egypt’s Central Statistics Bureau General Abu Bahar Jundi, saw as many as 35 million people taking to the streets Friday on both sides of the ideological divide. Egyptian army officials put the number at around 30 million.
