Skip to comments.(Live Thread) Egypt: American Killed During Violent Clashes (Egypt about to blow up)
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.
Six Egyptians have been killed in days of clashes ahead of nationwide protests Sunday demanding Morsi's removal.
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!
There’s an astounding shot of Alexandria along the sea...I can’t find it now...but it’s really quite amazing. If you see it grab it and please put it up full as this...I cannot do that or i would.
Here it is...stunningly beautiful shot.
Amazing...thanks for posting the photos...
I’ve been watching this since last night....it’s been astounding as I didn’t expect this to grow so large...and now it’s all over the world with France, Vienna and other countries showing solidarity with Egypt’s opposition to Morsi.
Twitter: "lol every time a military helicopter passes overhead it gets flooded with green lasers and ends up looking like a slow UFO #June30 #Egypt"
Thanks...this is Historic so we need to keep these coming for FR archieves.
So glad you’ve arrived!!!! ;)
This is really huge hoosiermama....more than people realize...and it’s now front and center on the world stage...so where’s our news?
This is an eye-bird view of the protests in #itihadiya #june30 pic.twitter.com/sbxGqMSZFM
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.
Thanks for posts. I can’t find my Egypt ping list from two years ago but I’m sure freepers will find their way
(Surgery tomorrow -will be out of loop for few days)
Here’s a shot of those lazers looks like hitting something in the air?
“now its all over the world with France, Vienna and other countries showing solidarity with Egypts opposition to Morsi.”
I didn’t expect this!
London, Paris, NYC, Sidney, Vienna
Thanks for ping maggief. Looks like this thread has become the LIVE THREAD!
Be well! Prayers up!
Prayers up for a successful surgery and full recovery.
Our media is frying burgers on the grill and getting soshed
Skeleton crews with no one with authority.
Posting live feed again for any who want to view Cairo Square....
Two or more amen
Here’s another by the sea....so stunning seeing Egypt standing by the banks of the Red Sea...in light of when Israel once stood there as well....for their freedom from oppression of the Egyptians......now they get it!

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.
So stunning isn’t it...and more Historical than most realize....over 5 million...out the size of the population in Libya for perspective.
But the worlds nations have risen with Egypt...I don’t think anyone expected this....and it’s been more than interesting following it on twitter....
I asked the monitor if they could keep this on Breaking...will see....
Ok....might have been someone trying to raise issues that weren’t...came from twitter....might have not been in the square either...
Will be careful what I post..if in doubt I’ll leave it off.
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.
History being made. MSM not covering.
Ping your lists
Pictures and live feeds here!
Sorry if there are double pins or you’re already here!
Interesting if true....

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.
“History being made. MSM not covering.”
sure enough! NO COVERAGE on CNN; Fox;MSNBC
caww: Will you repost the Twitter feed you are following.
That’s a really good shot...stunning...
AWESOME! RT @kanaafa: Nuts! Army helicopter with luminescent undercarriage showers #Tahrir with #Egypt flags #30June
Several Brotherhood headquarters in a number of cities have been torched during the past two days....photos scattered throughout twitter Egypt....and June 30th twitter.

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.
Yep...best I;ve found so far though there’s another on ‘June 30th” twitter that’s good as well.
This is going to be some night I tell ya....
Hearing in Alexandria the woman are safe and there is no sexual harassment there at all.
Demonstrating in Egypt largest in history. Millions
MSM not covering
Historic pictures and live stream on last of this thread
Please help spread the word!
“Too many military helicopter fly overs for my comfort #june30”
<....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.
Sounds of sirens in background ...
Morsi will be limited what he can do...but as long as the crowd remains calm he’ll sit tight i think.
No doubt his phone is ringing from International leaders.....
Morsi is being reminded that he serves at the pleasure of the business class and their military.
National Salvation Front announces that escalation will be a call for a general strike
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.
