Muslim Brotherhood cancels protest marches
August 19 , 2013
The Muslim Brotherhood canceled a series of protests around Egypt due to the threat of rooftop snipers.
Egypt was prepared for another day of bloodshed but the leaders of Brotherhood feared the protestors would get fired by army snipers so the marches were abruptly canceled.
The interim Cabinet is meeting and a decision on whether or not to ban the Muslim Brotherhood is expected.
The official death toll in Egypt has reached 830, which includes 79 people from yesterday.
