'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

CAIRO — Thousands of protesters calling for the return to power of Egypt's ousted Islamist president demonstrated in Cairo on Friday as the military warned it would crack down on any violence, underlining the point with a show of force by fighter jets flying over the capital.

Youth activists who started the huge protests that led to Mohammed Morsy's toppling by the military gathered in Cairo's Tahrir Square and outside two presidential palaces to celebrate their gains, raising fears of a fresh round of clashes in the capital.

The Interior Minister in charge of police, Mohammed Ibrahim, issued a statement on the ministry's Facebook page cautioning the ousted president's supporters against going to Tahrir Square and warning both sides against committing acts of violence.

The rival gatherings happened just days after a new interim cabinet was sworn-in that includes women, Christians and members of a liberal coalition opposed to Morsy, but no Islamists. The ousted president's Muslim Brotherhood party has refused to take part in talks with the interim leadership.

The country has been deeply polarized over the July 3 military coup that was supported by millions who accused Egypt's first democratically elected leader of abusing his power and giving too much influence to his Brotherhood group.

Pro-Morsy protesters waving Egyptian flags and pictures of the ousted leader chanted slogans — “al-Sisi is a traitor!” — against army chief Gen. Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi.
