CAIRO — Riot police swept in with armored vehicles, bulldozers and helicopters today to clear two sprawling encampments of supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi, sparking running street battles elsewhere in Cairo and other Egyptian cities. At least 149 people were killed, many of them in the assaults on the protest vigils.

Interim President Adly Mansour declared a monthlong state of emergency, ordering the armed forces to support the police in efforts to restore law and order and protect state facilities.
