Egypt: Mohammed Morsi imposes state of emergency

Five people died on Sunday at funerals for some of the 31 people killed the day before, hospital officials said, after protests against death sentences handed down to football rioters were met with live fire as well as tear gas.

In an especially worrying development, protesters were also armed and fired shots at police lines.
