Egypt police crush pro-Morsi protests on anniversary

Egyptian riot policemen douse burning tyres during a rally to mark the first anniversary of the military ouster of president Mohamed Morsi on July 3, 2014 in CairoEgyptian police swiftly quashed protests marking the anniversary Thursday of the military ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, firing tear gas and arresting dozens of demonstrators. The protests were seen as a test of the Islamists’ strength, with the Muslim Brotherhood-led Anti Coup Alliance having issued an aggressive rallying cry demanding a “day of anger” to mark the occasion. Police closed off several main squares in Cairo and scoured neighbourhoods to head off protests. Police also broke up protests elsewhere in Cairo, while three policemen were wounded when their checkpoint in a southern district of the capital was attacked and set on fire by protesters late Thursday, security officials said.
