Egypt's bloody past and uncertain future

After military and police forces killed hundreds of people, Egyptians are left wondering - and fearing - what the future holds. DW examines recent events in the country and what could be in store for Egypt.

Since being overwhelmed with euphoria after removing autocratic ruler Hosni Mubarak from power in 2011, Egypt has recently seen its first democratically elected president overthrown by the military and a crackdown on protests supporting him has left hundreds dead.

Many of the demonstrators who threw out Mubarak now wonder where to put their support as the largely peaceful revolution they sparked turns into fractious fighting and the society that was united in 2011 becomes increasing politically fragmented.

DW looks back at how Egyptian society was divided and what could be in store for Egyptians.
