Egypt security forces clear Cairo protest camps

The death toll continues to rise in Egypt, as security forces clear two protest camps in central Cairo in an operation that left parts of the capital looking like a war zone.

Egypt security forces clear Cairo protest camps

Egyptian security forces began clearing protest camps in Cairo on Wednesday, in what has quickly become a deadly clash with supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi. 

Reports of those killed vary, and it's likely the number will rise as more information comes in, but according to Reuters, at least 30 people have died, and many more are wounded.

Multiple accounts claim gunfire was heard and clouds of tear gas were seen as security forces attempted to take control of both Rabaa al-Adawiya and Nahda Square, where Muslim Brotherhood members and other Morsi supporters had been camped.
