The fallout from President Mohamed Morsy's sweeping power grab in Egypt has spiraled into more deaths, another key defection and a scene that resembles a war zone.
Tanks and armored personnel carriers rolled into the area near the presidential palace Thursday, trying to bring some calm to the country's latest center of turmoil.
Piles of rubble and burned cars littered the streets. The front doors of nearby storefronts were smashed in.
Five people have been killed and 446 injured in deadly clashes between pro- and anti-Morsy demonstrators outside the palace, the Egyptian health ministry said Thursday. At least 35 police officers are among the injured, the state-run MENA news agency reported.FULL STORY
