Video: Protesters loot building in Maqqatam, Egypt

McClatchy Washington BureauJuly 1, 2013 

Video from the Al Watan channel shows the destruction and looting in at what appears to be the office of the Muslim Brotherhood (from the sign on the front) in Muqqatam, Egypt. It is believed to have been shot in late June 2013.

In the video is also a paperback, lying on the floor, which is titled "Life of Morsi" and a plaque is held up by a protestor saying, "Muslim Brotherhood."

Mohammed Morsi is the President of Egypt. Massive protests have been ongoing in Egypt with the one year anniversary of his inauguration.
