Egypt: Mursi Supporters March Across Cairo, Block Traffic

Supporters of Egypt's deposed President Mohamed Mursi marched in Cairo's Nasr City on Tuesday, bringing traffic to a standstill for more than three hours, reported the state-owned news agency, MENA.

The protesters chanted against the army and demanded the return of the ousted president to his post.

They also marched in Maadi's Courniche, also halting traffic there as they staged a protest outside the Supreme Constitutional Court.

In addition, they formed a human chain on the ring road in Maadi, carrying pictures of Mursi and Egyptian flags.

The traffic standstill led to quarrels between Mursi's supporters and drivers who were affected by the traffic standstill.
