MOSCOW, October 2 (RIA Novosti) – Supporters of former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, ousted by the army in July after mass protests against his rule and arrested afterwards, have rallied on Cairo’s Tahrir Square, media reported.
Some 100 protesters gathered on the square Tuesday, Al Jazeera reported. They were chanting “down with military rule!” The demonstration was the first protest of Morsi supporters on Tahrir since he was forced to leave.
There were limited clashes between the protesters and local residents soon after the beginning of the anti-coup march. No one was reported injured. Police separated the conflicting sides from each other.
