Ongoing violence in Egypt peaked on August 14, marking one of the bloodiest days in recent Egyptian history. Conflicting death tolls were reported after the military cracked down on sit-ins throughout the country. Lasting more than a month, the sit-ins started in support of former president Mohamed Morsi. Prior to military intervention, demonstrators refused to leave until he returned to power.
