Egypt: Pro-Mursi Supporters to Stage Nine Rallies

Supporters of deposed Islamist President Mohamed Mursi are going to stage nine rallies across Cairo and Giza on Monday after afternoon prayers, the National Alliance to Support Legitimacy said in a statement.

A limited number of demonstrators marched on Sunday in two “anti-coup” rallies to Roxy Square in Heliopolis and the High Constitutional Court in Maadi, ending their protests an hour before the curfew started.

The marches are planned to set off from several mosques in Giza, Dokki, Imbaba and Helwan districts.

The National Alliance to Support Legitimacy has called for week-long protests across Egypt, dubbing it as the “Week of Departure”, following the security crackdown on the Islamist protest camps that were set-up in support of the deposed president.
