Mass protests hit Egypt's Mursi

Issue No. 2359

Some 15 million Egyptians have signed a petition calling on Muslim Brotherhood president Mohamed Mursi to stand down and call elections.

The campaign plans mass demonstrations this Sunday.

The police and army have officially refused to protect the Muslim Brotherhood on the day. 

It is now organising militias to defend its offices.
