Egypt risks spiralling into partisan violence

By Amnesty International, , Index number: MDE 12/039/2013

The Egyptian security forces must do more to protect lives and refrain from the use of excessive force, following ongoing clashes between supporters and opponents of deposed President Mohamed Morsi which have left scores dead. Given their routine use of excessive force, Amnesty International is concerned that security forces may use force to end sit-ins and demonstrations by Morsi’s supporters. Such a move is likely to lead to yet more unlawful killings, injuries and other human rights violations.
