Cairo — Muslim Brotherhood supporters staged a rally on Sunday morning on the Maadi Corniche to denounce sentencing 21 Muslim Brotherhood girls and women, including seven minors, to 11 years in prison.

The protesters raised Rabaa signs and images for toppled President Mohamed Morsy as well as images of the 21 girls and women.

Police have used heavy tear gas to clear hundreds of other supporters of Morsi from Cairo's Tahrir square.

Sunday's Islamist protesters came from Cairo University, where they have been protesting the death of an engineering student at the hands of police.
