Doesn't look good

CAIRO – An Egyptian government building was attacked and set ablaze Thursday, allegedly by supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi, a day after security forces killed hundreds of pro-Morsi demonstrators while clearing two protest encampments.

As a rally organized by Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood movement passed in front of the Giza municipal building, protesters broke away from the march and tore down the gate, witnesses said. They threw Molotov cocktails into the two-story building and at government vehicles parked in the garage. Those inside the building included the Giza deputy mayor.
