Egypt: Officials blame terrorists for chaos

Egypt's interim government implored the global community to listen to its side after days of deadly violence across the country.

Members of the foreign ministry showed a video-and-photo montage Sunday of recent carnage, blaming terrorists for the chaos. The foreign ministry also lambasted international media, saying outlets have been sympathetic to protesters who support ousted President Mohamed Morsy and the Muslim Brotherhood.

But supporters of Morsy have said Egyptian security forces instigated the violence that has killed hundreds in recent days, starting with a dawn raid at two pro-Morsy protest camps last week.

The bloody impasse between those who want Morsy back in power and the country's military-backed interim government could get uglier Sunday.

    How are we hated when it is the Middle East and Northern Africa who are dying? I find it hard to believe that WE have that much clout in that part of the world. IMO Its trouble of their own making. Terrorists get TOO MUCH credit. Just sayin'
