Egypt state of emergency

A member of the security forces lies on the ground as protesters gather, and one strikes him with his shoe, after his police vehicle was pushed off the 6th of October bridge by protesters, near the largest sit-in by supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi in the eastern Nasr City district of Cairo, Egypt, Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2013. Egyptian police in riot gear swept in with armored vehicles and bulldozers Wednesday to clear the sit-in camps set up by supporters of the country's ousted Islamist president in Cairo, showering protesters with tear gas as the sound of gunfire rang out.
