Pro-ousted president Mohamed Mursi supporters marched in Cairo over night holding symbolic coffins, demanding his reinstatement.
The clampdown on Mursi’s Muslim Brotherhood has continued with the issuing of arrest warrants for senior figures who are wanted for allegedly inciting violence.
“We are marching towards the Presidential Palace peacefully and we are not blood thirsty people or terrorists. We are carrying coffins symbolically for the 85 Martyrs we had and for the more than 1500 injured,“said one Mursi supporter.
The recent violent clashes with the military have intensified the belief held by Mursi supporters that the military intervention was nothing less than a coup.
