More Protests in Egypt

Via the BBC:  Egypt prepares for rival Ramadan protests

Supporters and opponents of the ousted Egyptian Islamist President Mohammed Morsi are preparing to stage large rallies in Cairo on the first Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan.

Mr Morsi’s supporters are gathering in their thousands in the east of the city to call for his reinstatement.

Those whose mass demonstrations led to his removal by the military last week are expected to mass in Tahrir Square.
