Clashes in Cairo

| No Comments

Violence erupted between mobs of protestors and security forces leaving two killed and over 600 injured.

The Boston Globe set the scene with strong images of protestors hurling stones and setting armored vehicles ablaze.

BBC paints a similar picture, but with much milder words, saying that protestors lobbed rocks and set police vehicles on fire.

However, both reports cover the actions of the police force in a similar light.

"They were shooting rubber bullets directly at the heads," Malek Mostafa, a protestor told the Associated Press. "I heard an officer order his soldiers to aim for the head."
