The situation in Egypt is grim. Over 200 pro-Morsi protesters have been killed, with blood running in the streets. Al Ahram reports f our journalists have been killed, others injured, beaten and detained in Cairo clashes.

Acting vice president Mohammed Al Baradei has resigned, in response to the violent actions by the military, led by  Abdel Fattah al-Sisi . 



The Egyptian military, directed by  Gen. Abdul-Fattah el-Sisi,  has appointed 19 generals as provincial governors, with civilian governors mostly being Mubarak loyalists. This is raising great concerns that Egypt could go backwards to a time of authoritarianism as existed under Mubarak. 

US Secretary of State John Kerry has stated  Kerry: "Egypt violence is 'deplorable,' Egyptians must 
step back"

Al Ahram reports,
" Egypt's presidency responded in mid-afternoon by declaring a state of emergency, to last for one month. Shortly after, the cabinet imposed an overnight curfew for the entire emergency period on 14 governorates. These include Cairo, Giza, Alexandria, Suez and six Upper Egyptian provinces.

Later in the evening, Egypt's armed forces, which played an auxillary role in backing police actions throughout the day, issued a statement vowing to act with "utmost firmness" against anyone violating the curfew. 

The state of emergency gives the police greater powers to arrest and detain citizens without a court order.

Al Ahram also reports that pro-Morsi, Muslim Brotherhood supporters attacked over 20 police stations and dozens Christian buildings and locales. The Egyptian news site also reported that eight Muslim Brotherhood leaders have been taken into custody,  including leaders Mohamed El-Beltagy, Essam El-Erian and Islamic preacher Safwat Hegazy.
