Before the massacre

This was the last protest of the Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo before the massacre at Rabaa.
The next day, the army shot more than 800 people and declared a state of emergency. The streets have been quite empty for days after that. And there was a terrible silence. Tanks, guns, checkpoints everywhere. Ever since, the army is controlling everything, including the mass media. A lot of journalists have been arrested and the army is still preventing journalists do their work.
