Violence Flares As Egyptian Forces Clear Protest Camps

Egyptian security forces moved in to clear two protest camps set up by supporters of ousted President Muhammad Morsi on August 14. Members of Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood report that more than 100 protesters have been killed in the operation, and have urged Egyptians to take to the streets to "stop a massacre." Egyptian authorities have disputed the claims of protesters' deaths, saying no protesters died, while at least two policemen were killed.
