2013 Egypt Rabaa Massacre

Exactly four years ago, hundreds of Egyptian protesters were killed in Cairo’s Rabaa al-Adawiya Square when security forces violently dispersed a sit-in held to support ousted President Mohamed Morsi.

Six weeks before the massacre, Morsi — Egypt’s first freely elected president and a leader of the now-banned Muslim Brotherhood — had been ousted and imprisoned by the formidable military establishment.

In the four years since the bloody sit-in dispersal, Egypt’s post-coup authorities have waged a wide-ranging crackdown on dissent, killing hundreds of Brotherhood members and Morsi supporters and throwing thousands more behind bars.
