Egyptian security forces storm protesters’ camps

CAIRO — Egyptian security forces stormed two sprawling sit-ins by supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi shortly after dawn Wednesday, killing dozens of people and igniting a wave of violent clashes across the country.
Hours after the raids, Egypt’s military-backed interim president declared a state of emergency, imposing a nighttime curfew on Cairo and 10 provinces and allowing security forces to arrest and detain civilians indefinitely without charge. The state of emergency took effect at 4 p.m. local time (10 a.m. EDT).
Mohamed ElBaradei, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate who was appointed vice president in the interim government last month, resigned to protest the violent crackdown.
The United States strongly condemned the violence and expressed opposition to the state of emergency. It said it would hold the interim government accountable for keeping its promises of a speedy transition to a democratically elected civilian administration.
