Egyptian security boosted after deadly clashes



CAIRO — Security forces increased positions near a protest camp by supporters of ousted leader Mohammed Morsi as authorities Saturday plotted their next moves after violence claimed at least 36 lives across the country.
In a further sign of the concern the unrest could spin out of control, Egypt’s interim president held talks with the army chief and interior minister — whose snub of Morsi’s authority earlier this week tipped the scales against Egypt’s first elected leader.
The Interior Ministry added that at least eight policemen have been killed since the eve of the anti-Morsi protests on June 30, marking his anniversary in office.
Officials have briefly detained top figures from Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood and have kept the toppled president from the public eye, under detention in an undisclosed location.
But Morsi’s supporters have vowed to take to the streets until the toppled Islamist leader is reinstated. His opponents, meanwhile, have called for more mass rallies to defend what they call the “gains of June 30,” a reference to the start of massive protests to call for the ouster of the president.
