WASHINGTON — An alliance of 13 human rights groups demands an investigation into forceful dispersals of Morsi supporters this past August, which Egyptian security forces killed dozens of protesters.

egyptian riots post morsiReuters reported that the interim government cracked down on Morsi supporters and jailed thousands of them, in addition to outlawing the radical Islamist movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, and arrested key figures within the movement.

Former and deposed president Mohammed Morsi is now facing trial for inciting violence and treason against Egypt. And, the Egyptian courts upheld the ban on the Muslim Brotherhood.

The group accused the Egyptian security forces of “excessive and unjustified use of lethal force” to disperse two sit-in protests by Morsi supporters in Cairo.

But, the group overlooked the brutal suppression of democracy by the Morsi government and his Muslim Brotherhood supporters, such as jailing bloggers and conducting terrible economic policies that nearly destroyed the Egyptian economy.
