Two pro-Morsy marches reach Rabea al-Adaweya sit-in

Two marches comprising hundreds of supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsy arrived at mosques to join Friday prayers, ahead of mass rallies demanding Morsy's reinstatement as Egyptian president.

 

The marches arrived at al-Rahman al-Raheem mosque on Salah Salem Street and Al-Rashdan mosque, both in Cairo's Nasr City, close to the pro-Morsy sit-in at Rabea al-Adaweya.

Protesters chanted slogans and carried photos of the ousted president, as well as Egyptian and black Islamist flags.

Morsy supporters flocked to Rabea al-Adaweya mosque, joining the sit-in, which has set up camp there for almost a month.
