As clashes between pro and anti-Mursi protesters in Egypt leave dozens dead, the Muslim Brotherhood called for new peaceful demonstrations on Saturday to reinstate the ousted president.
Just hours before the violence erupted, the supreme guide of the Muslim Brotherhood Mohammed Badie made a surprise appearance after reports of his arrest.
“We will never give up Mursi’s presidency. Look at the president’s initiative, it aimed to unite all the Egyptian people, you will find that the initiative responded to all of the people’s demands. We are willing to sacrifice ourselves to protect our president Mohamed Mursi,” declared Badie.
Two more top members of the Muslim Brotherhood have allegedly been arrested on charges of inciting violence.
Mursi supporters have vowed to stay on the streets in their millions until their president returns.
