Heavy fighting has broken out in Egypt during rival mass rallies for and against the army overthrow of President Mohamed Mursi. Unconfirmed reports from the Mursi supporters said 31 people died in the clashes. In Cairo, hundreds of thousands of Egyptians heeded a call by army chief to hit the streets and give him a popular mandate to confront violence unleashed following the president’s ousting. The Brotherhood mounted counter-demonstrations, swelling a month-long vigil in northern Cairo before violence erupted. Fr. Rafic Greiche is the press office director of the Catholic Church in Egypt. He spoke with us about the latest wave of violence in Egypt.
