· 750 dead in the three days from Wednesday to Friday August 16th

· Men wielding guns and machetes kill indiscriminately

· Egypt descends into anarchy with 100 dead on Friday

· The military and police face Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood

· Government authorizes police and security forces to kill on-sight

· Islamist in Turkey, Tunisia and Pakistan organize protests against the crackdown

· Questions arise: “Are we just going to fight each other endlessly?”

Egypt erupted into violent chaos on Friday, raising doubts about the new authorities’ capacity to maintain order, as Islamists and other opponents of last month’s military takeover fought security forces and their civilian allies in street battles across the capital and other cities.

By 3 a.m. Saturday, hundreds of protesters had taken refuge in a nearby mosque that for most of the day had served as a field hospital and morgue, refusing to leave for fear of arrests. Swarms of riot police officers and their supporters in civilian clothes began breaking down the doors, throwing rocks through the windows, and filling the mosque with tear gas. Among the Islamists killed in Ramses Square was Dr. Khaled el-Banna, 30, a grandson of the Muslim Brotherhood’s founder, Hassan el-Banna, who was gunned down near the same square in 1949.
