Egypt's Morsi Declares State of Emergency

Two years after the bringing down the government of former President Hosni Mubarak, Egypt's Islamist President Mohammed Morsi is facing a wave of protests against him and his government.
Over the weekend, Morsi declared a state of emergency in the cities of Port Said, Suez and Islamia and imposed a 30-day curfew after clashes between anti-government protestors and Morsi's security forces left at least 33 dead.
Demonstrations also took place in other cities, including Alexandria, Menouf and Shibeen el-Koum, where protestors disrupted train service to and from Cairo.
