Nahda Square and Rabaa - Cairo August 14, 2013

These were the two largest pro-Brotherhood "sit-in" camps.  But factually, Brotherhood supporters did much more than just "sitting-in."  They were frightfully violent.

The two protest camps had been the citadels for planning attacks on Morsi opponents and the police.  They gradually became systematized and entrenched, a bit like tent cities.  Portions of the camps were behind makeshift cement walls with plenty of sandbags around.  Street vendors did profitable business, setting up their stalls close by selling vegetables, fruits and other groceries.  In a portion within one of the tents, there was an  'exhibition' of sorts with images of those who died during protests last July.  A number of dead bodies of opposition protesters with marks of torture have been found around the premises of the camps - a disturbing  discovery - with suspicions arising that torture cells were housed inside the camps.  Residents of Cairo and Egyptian human rights activists strongly suspect weapons were hidden as well.  Outside of Cairo, MB supporters surrounded and set fire to government buildings and attacked several churches. Christians, who make up 10 percent of the Egyptian population of 85 million have been fearful since their community endorsed the army takeover.  Across the country, Morsi supporters attacked more than 20 police stations, about 7 churches and also occupied the ground floor of the Finance Ministry in Cairo after storming it. 

No surprise the interim government had been warning since several days prior to August 14 that an assault was on the way .... it became inevitable.
