Victims treated in Cairo, Egypt, violence

Flickr photographer Ester Meerman took these photos during the violence and protests in Cairo on Wednesday, Aug. 14. See more of her photos here.

She writes: "Clashes erupted in several neighbourhoods in Cairo after security forces dispersed the Muslim Brotherhood sit-ins at Rabaa Al Adaweyya in Nasr City and Nahda Square in Giza.

Pro-Morsi supporters were quick to set up a new sit-in in front of the Mostafa Mahmoud mosque in the Cairo neighbourhood of Mohandiseen, where clashes erupted between protesters and riot police."
