Egypt’s tragedy: World speaks too little, too late

US Secretary of State
At last, Mr Kerry is ‘concerned’ about events in Egypt

It can only be good that the world, at last, is waking up to the injustice of what it has watched (without protest) in Egypt. John Kerry’s “deep concern” (long overdue and greatly underdone); Mohammed el Baradei’s concurrence that General Sisi’s men used extortionate force. All of this is too little too late.

But at least someone’s saying something about the extraordinary circumstances of having an elected president suddenly disappear and an army deploy within its own country all the better to shoot down unarmed protestors seeking democracy!

Mr Kerry has urged Egypt to pull “back from the brink” and described Saturday’s bloodshed as “a pivotal moment”.

Who, if anyone, is minded to listen?
