Cairo braces for crackdown on pro-Morsi protest camps

Egyptian security forces are expected to go into action Monday to break up the two protest sit-ins encamped at two sites in the capital since Mohamed Morsi was ousted last month. The protesters have refused to negotiate a quiet dispersal. Sandbags fortify their camps and sentries guard entries, while inside facilities are available for entire families. The police plan to create cordons around the tent cities to block supplies of food and water. The Muslim Brotherhood and inmates say they are determined to withstand any blockade.
