Supporters of Egypt's ousted President Mohammed Morsi, seen in poster with Arabic that reads, "yes to legitimacy," march in the Maadi district Cairo, Egypt, Monday, Aug. 19, 2013. Tensions in Egypt have soared since the army ousted Morsi, Hosni Mubarak's successor, in a July 3 coup following days of protests by millions of Egyptians demanding the Islamist president leave and accusing him of abusing his powers. But Morsi's supporters have fought back, staging demonstrations demanding that he be reinstated and denouncing the military coup. On Wednesday, the military raided two protest camps of Morsi's supporters in Cairo, killing hundreds of people and triggering the current wave of violence.(AP Photo/Amr Nabil)
