Is Egypt Teetering on the Edge of Something Even Worse?

Neil Durkin | Posted 19.10.2013 | UK Politics
Neil Durkin

While there have been attacks on the security forces (including on police stations), the Egyptian security forces have generally behaved with reckless trigger-happiness and on a massive scale. People - men, women and children - have been burned to death in their protest tents... A hospital and other medical facilities have been attacked as if they were military targets. Doctors have been stopped from getting urgent medical help for gravely wounded people. These are serious crimes from a security apparatus already saturated in the blood of (mostly) peaceful protesters... this is surely the time for outside experts to try to avert the worst and undo some of the damage.
