At least seven are dead and hundreds wounded after deadly clashes between Muslim Brotherhood supporters and opposition protesters. The violence follows two weeks of protests responding to Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi’s power play last month, when he issued a decree that placed him above judicial oversight.
