Security forces in Egypt struggle to implement a restrictive new protest law. In Cairo supporters of ousted President Mohamed Mursi scattered into the side streets near a Presidential Palace seeking refuge from tear gas. Protesters put coloring in a public water fountain to simulate blood. In the nearby province of Giza, tear gas fills the streets as anger mounts over a controversial law adopted by the military backed government that severely restricts protest. On Wednesday more than a dozen women were sentenced to 11 years in prison for obstructing traffic. A man on the street vents his outrage In Alexandria demonstrators hold up four fingers to show solidarity with the jailed women. The number of protests and the scale of political violence have grown since July when the army removed Mursi from power following mass protests against his rule. A harsh crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood followed with more than 1,000 protesters killed and thousands more now in jail.
