On the 3rd of July 2013, Egypt's first democratically elected president, Mohammed Morsi, was arrested by the military, after only a year in power. 



The Egyptian people came out to the streets to show their support for Morsi and his Muslim brotherhood party, and the opposition in support of the military led by General Sisi. 



Subsequently the streets of many large towns and cities have seen deadly battles between the two sides, with the military having shot dead many pro-Morsi supporters.
