One of the pics I took last week during violent clashes between supporters of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and opposition protesters in the Cairo suburb of Muqattam up on Andrew Sullivan’s ‘The Dish’. Friday the 22nd was an incredibly violent day in the small Cairo suburb that hosts the Brotherhood’s national headquarters, and the level of hatred the was on display between the two sides made me very concerned for Egypt’s future. Major political groups, and their public supporters, are now incredibly polarised in their opposing views, and calls to violence are becoming much more common.

Opposition demonstrators converged on the headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Cairo suburb of Muqattam to protest against the government of President Mohammed Morsi, who is closely connected to the Muslim Brotherhood movement.
