Egyptian Protesters Throw an Armored Car Off a Bridge—And Other Incredible Images From Cairo

This is what a national emergency looks like. On Wednesday, Egyptian troops marched into Cairo to break up two sit-ins supporting deposed President Mohammed Morsi. The results were deadly. According to The Wall Street Journal, at least 95 were killed and nearly 900 were injured in the  conflict. However, there are conflicting accounts. The Muslim Brotherhood claims that more than 300 protesters are dead as a result of the crackdown.

The military repotedly shot tear gas and live ammunition into the crowds. But the violence went both ways. As made clear in the images below, the protesters threw a military vehicle off the side of a bridge, and some carried guns themselves. While the Egyptian army barred reporters from entering the scene, that didn’t stop photojournalists from capturing the chaos.
