At about 6am on 14 August 2013 the security forces carried out operations to clear two pro-Morsi sit-ins in Greater Cairo, ongoing since 28 June 2013. As of Friday morning, Egypt’s Health Ministry reported 638 deaths across Egypt. Of these, 288 were in the Nasr City neighbourhood, the site of the main pro-Morsi sit-in at Rabaa al-Adawiya Square. This makes it the bloodiest single incident since the outbreak of the “25 January Revolution” more than two years ago.
