Scenes from the fresh clashes in Egypt
A rally Friday was dubbed by organizers as "The Last Chance Million-Man Protest," and came one day after the military offered an apology for the killing of nearly 40 protesters in clashes on side streets near Tahrir over the last week. The United Nations strongly condemned authorities for what it deemed an excessive use of force. The Obama administration also voiced fresh support on Friday for restive Egyptians demanding a smoother, speedier transition to democracy following President Hosni Mubarak's fall from power earlier this year.
