CAIRO (AP) -- Egyptian security forces have stormed the main sit-in camp of supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi in eastern Cairo after clearing out a smaller sit-in outside Cairo University’s campus.
Wednesday’s developments are the latest chapter in the turmoil that has roiled Egypt since the 2011 ouster of autocrat Hosni Mubarak and are likely to deepen the nation’s division between the camp of Islamists led by the Muslim Brotherhood on one side, and secularists, liberals, moderate Muslims and minority Christians on the other.
