Egypt: Small-Scale Pro-Brotherhood Marches in Cairo, Giza

Cairo, Dec 6 (Aswat Masriya) - Supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood organised several small-scale marches on Friday noon in Cairo and Giza.

The demonstrators gathered and marched from mosques in Helwan, Maadi, Nasr City in Cairo and two mosques in Giza, the Middle East News Agency (MENA) said.

The participants carried pictures of the Rabaa symbol and chanted slogans to demand the return of ousted President Mohamed Mursi.

The pro-Mursi National Coalition for Supporting Legitimacy has called for demonstrating in Friday in support of women.

Police and army forces sealed off Tahrir and Nahda squares and intensified their presence in the parameters of the Ittihadeya and Qubba palaces in Cairo.
