The Egyptian army was today patrolling the streets of Cairo after deadly clashes between supporters and opponents of the country’s Islamist leader Mohammed Morsi.
Seven people have been killed and almost 500 injured as the tension which has building since the President assumed near total powers over the country threatens to erupt.
