Supporters of Egypt’s Islamist President Mohamed Morsi (portrait) walk past Egyptian army tanks deployed near the presidential palace in Cairo after five demonstrators died overnight in clashes between supporters and opponents of Morsi on December 6, 2012. Morsi was expected to issue a statement to address the worst violence since his June election, which has pitted Islamists against an opposition that has escalated protests since he assumed extensive powers on November 22.
