      Wednesday’s brutal clearing of two pro-Morsi sit-ins has shaken Cairo. It was the largest massacre of civilians in Egypt since Hosni Mubarak was toppled in 2011. Over 600 people were killed and more than a thousand injured. The violence has inspired supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood to call for a March of Rage on Friday.

      VICE correspondent Wail Gzoly was at the al Iman mosque in Nasr City on Thursday where many of the injured and the dead from the Raba’a mosque encampment were taken. He sent us this footage. We should warn you that some of the images are graphic.
