Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has called off a planned march on the country’s Constitutional Court. However a crowd of supporters of the deposed President Mohammed Morsi has gathered and is now heading towards the Presidential Palace.
Security forces are in place, watching and waiting, but many in Cairo are fed up and just want to get back to normality.
“What the Muslim Brotherhood is doing is not right. They’ve ruined everything, they’ve even ruined the mosque which belongs to God. It’s not right that even the houses of God be handled this way. May God protect Egypt, her youth and her army,” said one man.
“I feel sorry for these bloody events in Egypt , I do not understand those who do not want Egypt to get through this crisis, whether they are from the Muslim Brotherhood or against them, anyone who is supporting the instability in the country should be punished,” said another.
While yesterday’s army assault ensured the al-Fath mosque would not become a potential strongpoint of resistance, the capital does not lack significant targets that the Muslim Brotherhood may seek to exploit.
