Egypt in turmoil

Protesters continued to show their support for ousted president Mohammed Morsi today in Cairo as Egypt's military-backed interim President Adli Mansour selected a vice president and prime minister. Massive demonstrations that began over a week ago marking Morsi's first year of power led to fighting between pro- and anti-Morsi forces, and some 50 pro-Morsi Muslim Brotherhood protesters were killed outside Republican Guard headquarters. Gathered here are images from the turmoil in Egypt over the last few weeks. -- Lloyd Young( 40 photos total)
