Violent Clashes Erupt In Egypt's Second Largest City

Business Insider

Clashes have erupted, reportedly involving live ammunition, in Alexandria, Egypt between supporters of ex-Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and those who support the military's power move to oust him.

One of the pictures floating around purporting to be a massive Pro-Morsi march is actually from an anti-Morsi march from last week.

But there are credible photos from the ground that show a large Pro-Morsi crowd on the streets of Egypt's second largest city.
