Tallying a Weekend of Violence in Egypt

Hosted by

Egypt's ruling generals have admitted that 36 Islamists were killed while in custody in the past few days. The government has justified detaining and killing leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood by calling them "terrorists." There have, in fact, been attacks on Coptic Christian churches. A court has reportedly acquitted former President Hosni Mubarak of corruption charges and ordered that he be set free. After a week of violence that killed almost 1000 people, what's it like on the streets of Cairo? Mike Giglio is Middle East correspondent for Newsweek and the Daily Beast. Matt Bradley is Middle East correspondent for the Wall Street Journal.
