Massive protests are planned in Egypt, a day after more than 580 Egyptians died in fierce fighting. Witnesses say many of those killed today were shot by Egyptian security forces firing live ammunition at protest camps. At the same time Islamist demonstrators attacked churches and called for a Muslim state in Egypt. Anderson takes a closer look at today's violence and what we can expect tomorrow. He spoke with CNN's Arwa Damon in Cairo, Egyptian journalist Mona Eltahawy, Arab affairs analyst Robin Wright, and Daily Beast correspondent Peter Beinart.
Hundreds of people die as a wave of street violence sweeps across Egypt. The majority of those killed were members of the Muslim Brotherhood and supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsy. In addition, dozens of police officers were also killed in the fighting. This latest violence began when security forces raided a camp full of Morsy's supporters in Cairo. CNN's Arwa Damon got close to the fighting earlier today during her reporting. Anderson spoke to her from Cairo.
