Egyptian jet fighters trail smoke as they fly over Tahrir Square in the capital Cairo, on June 30, 2016 during a celebration of the third anniversary of the protests that led to the ousting of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi by current President, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, then the army chief.
Millions took to the streets of Cairo and other cities on June 30, 2013 to call for the removal of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, whose one-year rule had been deeply divisive. Sisi, then the army chief, gave Morsi a 48-hour ultimatum to respond to 'the people's demands' before ordering the military to overthrow and detain him. Since Morsi's overthrow, more than 1,000 protesters have been killed in clashes, including more than 600 killed in a single day on August 14 when police dispersed a Cairo protest camp demanding his reinstatement. / AFP / KHALED Show more
