(Live Thread) Egypt: American Killed During Violent Clashes (Egypt about to blow up)
CBS News ^ | Friday, June 28, 2013

Posted on 06/28/2013 3:58:06 PM PDT by kristinn

Egyptian security and medical officials say an American has been killed in the Mediterranean coastal city of Alexandria during clashes between supporters and opponents of Egypt's embattled President Mohammed Morsi.

Alexandria security chief Gen. Amin Ezz Eddin told Al-Jazeera TV that an American was killed Friday in Sidi Gabr Square while photographing the battles between opposition youth and members of the Muslim Brotherhood, from which Morsi hails.

A medical official told The Associated Press the American was wounded by gunshots and died at the hospital.

SNIP

Six Egyptians have been killed in days of clashes ahead of nationwide protests Sunday demanding Morsi's removal.

SNIP

The State Department said Friday that Americans should defer nonessential travel to Egypt, citing the uncertain security situation. It also said it would allow nonessential staff and the families of personnel at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to leave Egypt until conditions improve.

<....” Our “free” press is chained in their own mind! All in one voice: SILENCE! VIVA 0b0z0!”.....>

This has broken all records for demonstrations...and it’s worldwide now with people in the streets. And yet our news might give it a mention.

Guiness Book said the largest gathering of demonstrators in History.

Historical...and I might add at the minimum Prophetic pending where it moves next....

Astounding when we can get live streaming in Russia News...yet ours is silent!

Of all the shots I’ve been viewing this one tells the story best as these were people on their way....

Reminded me of what might have looked similar to when Israel crossed the Red sea...only this is Egypt and today.

Really quite the contrast when you consider.

Latest:

in Bani Swaif, a “sheikh” leading jihadists carrying black flags attacked an anti-Morsi demonstration and opened fire.

one person was shot in the neck and killed and many injured.

BTW, no killing or raping women in Tahrir Square. None of the Ikhwan bastards could even approach the square.

Maggief, thanks for the stunning pictures.

Later

I'd like to know what he was doing pointing anything at active combatants. That's just asking for it. Whether they mistake a camera for a weapon, or whether they correctly identify it as a camera but decide you are or might be working for the enemy, they still smoke you.

The rebel side really does not want pics taken that could identify them. The government side really does not want pics taken that would make the govt look bad. It's a tossup as to which side the guy who shot him was at.

Thanks for pinging folks...they at least need to be made aware at this historical time.

BTW I understand Obama has three ships in the Red Sea loaded with Marines if this demonstration gets out of hand. Hopefully he won’t get stupid and just keep our guys out of it.

Could the Egyptians be headed for a civil war?

The 0bama regime is not incompetent, this is a willful act designed to destabilize the region. From Tunisia to Turkey, riots and wars everywhere.

End Times type of stuff.

<....Could the Egyptians be headed for a civil war?....>

Remains to be seen if this gigantic crowd remains calm...but there are so many millions opposing Morsi I can’t see his supporters rising against this many...they are incredibly outnumbered to say the least.

Not to mention the nations across the world now supporting the opposition in gathering themselves in solidarity with Egypt.

Numbers are at 17 million demonstrating...and Guiness Book stating Officially the largest ever.

What a picture for a beautiful city.

FYI, Alexandria IS the HQ for the Moslem Brotherhood but all the coastal cities, on the Suez Canal, on the Mediterranean and the red see are taking care of business. They set the Ikhwan HQs ablaze already.

In Sidi Gaber, Alexandria, the American was killed by the Ikhwan when he approached to photograph their HQ BEFORE it was set afire. He was stabbed once in the chest and pronounced dead in the hospital. That was the report on Egyptian TV interviewing medical personnel at the time.
