      Egypt Bracing for a Violent Weekend


      Egyptian security forces are preparing for a violent weekend as the trial of ousted president Mohammed Morsi continues. His Muslim Brotherhood backers have planned demonstrations for Friday and Saturday. Eleven Muslim Brotherhood activists were arrested, Thursday, on suspicion of incitement using social media on the Internet, according to the Egyptian Foreign Ministry.

      Egyptian helicopters launched what Arab media called an unprecedented 60 shells at targets associated with international jihad terrorists, Thursday evening near the city of Sheikh Zawid in the northern part of the Sinai Peninsula.
