Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi declared a month-long state of emergency last night in Port Said, Ismailia and Suez along the Suez Canal, which have been the focus of anti-government violence that has killed dozens of people over the past four days. Seven people were shot dead and hundreds were injured in Port Said during the funerals of 33 protesters killed at the weekend. A total of 49 people have been killed in demos around the country since Thursday.
