Tensions in Egypt turn deadly; CNN’s Ian Lee reports an 'uneasy calm in Cairo' now

Violence erupted in Cairo last night when supporters and opponents of President Mohamed Morsy clashed around the presidential palace in reaction to Morsy’s perceived grab for power. Demonstrators hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails at each other. At least 5 were killed in the violence and hundreds were injured.

Tanks and armored personnel carriers are guarding the palace this morning. CNN’s Ian Lee has more for us live from Cairo. He joins us by phone. “Right now there’s kind of an uneasy calm in Cairo,” Lee says.
