Scores of President Mohamed Mursi opponents gathered on Thursday at al-Nafoura Square in Mokattam near the main headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) to which Mursi belongs, an activist reported.

We are preparing for a march to the brotherhood headquarters "because Ikhwan are the ones ruling Egypt", Hani Hodeyab, member of the Social Democratic Egyptian Party's politburo told Aswat Masriya today.

"Down with the rule of the Guide," the protesters chanted in reference to the Muslim Brotherhood's General Guide.
