Mideast Egypt
Egyptian security forces try to keep angry crowds away from the al-Fatah mosque, where supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood barricade themselves, in Ramses Square, downtown Cairo, Egypt, Saturday, Aug. 17, 2013. Hundreds of Islamist protesters barricaded themselves inside the mosque overnight on Friday, following a day of fierce street battles. A Muslim cleric, Sheik Abdel-Hafiz el-Maslami, still inside the mosque told The Associated Press that people are afraid to leave the mosque out of fear of detention or being assaulted by the crowd outside.
