More pro Mohamed Morsi demonstrators flocked to the sit-in at Cairo’s Rabaa al-Adaweya Mosque on Thursday in preparation for a million-man demonstration on Friday which the National Coalition for Supporting Legitimacy called for.
The demonstrators demand returning deposed president Mohamed Morsi to power and reversing what they call the military coup against democracy.
Hailing from different cities, many joined the sit-in at Rabaa today before breaking their fast on the second day of the holy month of Ramadan for fear of not being able to get to the mass demonstrations if they travel on Friday.
Several planned marches for Mohamed Morsi supporters are expected to gather on Friday at Rabaa Mosque in Cairo and Nahda Square in Giza as well as Shubra al-Kheima and Moneeb areas then head to the presidential palace, the Republican Guard headquarters and the Ministry of Defence.
The state news agency correspondent reported that the demonstrators at Rabaa hung a new banner that has the colors of the Egyptian flag and says “Democracy against Coup”.
They also put up several banners carrying Mohamed Morsi’s pictures and Egypt’s flag all over the square.
The Mohamed Morsi demonstrators placed posters in various languages, including English and French, to acquaint foreign media reporters with the demands of peaceful, pro-legitimacy supporters.
Egypt prosecutor orders investigation in Mohamed Morsi prison escape
Egypt’s prosecutor-general Hisham Barakat received the case of ousted President Mohamed Morsi’s prison escape on Thursday and ordered an investigation in it.
Mohamed Morsi escaped along with other Islamists during the January 25 revolution that toppled Hosni Mubarak in 2011.
A court ruled in the case last month, but the case was returned to the prosecution for review.
Thirty-five Muslim Brotherhood leaders, the party which Mohamed Morsi is from, were summoned for questioning while a committee was formed to investigate the allegations filed against them.
