Pro-Morsi supports rally ahead of new 'million man march'
Egyptians loyal to former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi have called for a "million person march" to take place on Tuesday in Cairo in protest of his ousting.
"We also call for a million person march under the banner of 'Martyrs of the Coup' on Tuesday," the Anti-Coup Alliance of Islamist groups that is organising the protests said in a statement on Monday, according to Reuters.
The rallying of the pro-Morsi crowd comes after 74 people died over the weekend as Egyptian security forces clashes with protesters around the country.
The group that organised the ousting of Morsi, the Tamarod campaign, yesterday voiced concern over the role of the security forces in Egypt under the interim government, warning the interior ministry of a return to a 'Mubarak-era', referring to the state's heavy reliance on state security during the rule of former president Hosni Mubarak and the January 25 revolution.
