Morsy opponents chant slogans as fire rages at the Muslim Brotherhood headquarters in Alexandria in June 2013. Months earlier, Morsy granted himself unprecedented executive powers, preventing any court from overturning his decisions. He refused to bow to an ultimatum, issued by Egypt's military leaders, to find a solution to violence in the country or leave his post.
An injured man is carried into a makeshift hospital after clashes between Egyptian police and Morsy supporters in July 2013. Morsy was ousted in a military coup after a year in office.
