Year after Cairo carnage, Sisi turns page on Arab Spring

A protestor carries a fellow protester near Rabaa al-Adawiya square in Cairo on August 14, 2013A year after a bloody Cairo crackdown, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has tightened his grip on Egypt, crushed the Muslim Brotherhood, jailed top opponents and turned the page on the Arab Spring, critics say. On August 14, 2013, after Sisi ousted Egypt’s first freely elected president, Mohamed Morsi, the security forces launched a crackdown on thousands of his supporters at protest camps in Cairo’s Rabaa al-Adawiya and Nahda squares that left hundreds dead. Police said eight policemen also died in Rabaa, from a total of 42 policemen killed across Egypt that day. The crackdown was launched after thousands of pro-Morsi supporters refused to end their sit-ins despite repeated warnings by the interim authorities installed by Sisi, who at the time was army chief.
