Egypt’s Islamist president issued state of emergency and called for political dialogue after at least 48 people were killed in clashes since Friday.
An angry Mohammed Morsi vowed in a televised address on Sunday he would not hesitate to take more action to stem the latest eruption of violence across much of the country, issuing 30-day states of emergencies in Port Said, Ismailiya and Suez.
In Port Said, tens of thousands of mourners filled the streets for a mass funeral for most of the 37 people killed in rioting a day earlier, chanting slogans against Mohammed Morsi and clashing with police.
