Hundreds of thousands turned out across Egypt for pro-army demonstrations but clashed with counter protests causing chaos.

As a result, at least 100 have died in clashes as supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi who also also lined the streets. Morsi has been formally accused of conspiring with Palestinian group Hamas and of murdering officers.

The violence occurred hours after Morsi supporters and opponents attended mass rival rallies across Egypt.

Hundreds of thousands of people came onto the streets after army chief General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi asked Egyptians to tackle violence and terrorism.

Violence begets violence and hate begets hate. This translates into violent behavior, which eventually promotes other violent behavior.
