Gunfire rang out over a main Cairo overpass and police fired tear gas as clashes broke out after tens of thousands of Muslim Brotherhood supporters took to the streets Friday across Egypt in defiance of a military-imposed state of emergency following the country's bloodshed earlier this week.

Each week we bring you the very best in visual journalism.

The headlines this week came out of Egypt, where deadly clashes and sectarian tensions have spread across the country after security forces stormed two Cairo sit-ins, killing hundreds of supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsi. The interim government declared a state of emergency as battles between Morsi loyalists and police erupted in Cairo, Alexandria and Aswan, and in smaller towns and villages. Public buildings were set ablaze, and Egyptian media reported that churches were attacked in a number of provinces as Islamists blamed Christians for backing the army. More photos
