Photographer Mosa'ab Elshamy captured these images of violence and sadness Wednesday at a sit-in outside the Rabaa mosque in Cairo, as government forces clashed with Muslim Brotherhood supporters and backers of deposed President Mohammed Morsi.
The country's health ministry said that at least a few hundred had been killed on Wednesday in a police raid on Morsi supporters at a Cairo protest camp and battles nationwide. The official MENA news agency quoted a ministry spokesman who said more than 1,000 were wounded, according to Reuters.
The nation's interim vice president, Mohamed ElBaradei, resigned after the security forces violently broke up protest camps.
