FILE - In this Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013 file photo, Egyptian police and protesters clash outside a courtroom in Alexandria, Egypt. With near impunity and the backing of the Islamist president, Egyptian police have over the past week used excessive and often deadly force against protesters across much of the country, regaining their Mubarak-era notoriety as a tool of repression. With nearly 60 people dead and hundreds injured, police have re-emerged as a significant political player after spending the past two years on the sidelines. (AP Photo/Ahmed Ramadan, File)
