8/15/13 - Breaking: Egypt Death Toll Now 638! Health Officials Confirm
CAIRO — Angry supporters of ousted president Mohammed Morsi staged protests and burned buildings Thursday as President Obama condemned the violence on both sides and canceled next month's joint military operations. The unrest came a day after at least 638 people were killed in violence nationwide, including 43 police, the Health Ministry said. Most of the deaths occurred when security forces smashed two pro-Morsi sit-in camps in the capital. In the Nasr City District, 288 people were killed.
