Divisions – and defiance – take hold in former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi’s back yard

A group of village children scampered behind the coffin as it was driven past some mud-brick stables. Inside was the body of Dr Sayeed Abdel Salaam.

Today he became a statistic – a battered and bloodied victim of the 30 June insurrection.

When Egypt’s former president Hosni Mubarak, ousted after the Arab Spring uprising of February 2011, was eventually detained in the notorious Tora prison on the outskirts of Cairo – where his own enemies had been held during his rule - it must have seemed to like the perfect just deserts for the man branded a dictator by his people.
