Pro-Morsi demonstrators in Cairo set out for defense ministry headquarters Friday night to demand reinstatement of Egypt`s ousted president.
Speakers at Nasr City`s Rabaa Al-Adawiya Mosque, where a massive sit-in by supporters of ousted Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi is being held, announced that a peaceful march had set off towards defense ministry headquarters, along with other planned marches late Friday.
On Monday, over fifty people, mainly Morsi supporters, were killed in clashes with military forces following a protest at Presidential Guards headquarters in Cairo.
The Armed Forces have repeatedly warned against any attacks on military facilities. Following Monday`s clashes, they accused Morsi supporters of attacking the building.
The Brotherhood, for its part, said protesters had been peaceful.
Meanwhile, a march of thousands of Morsi supporters headed to the Ittihadiya presidential palace late Friday from the Ramses district in downtown Cairo, where they had earlier gathered to demand the ousted president`s reinstatement.
The long-lasting march has been peaceful in nature. As of midnight Friday, it had yet to reach its final destination.
Hundreds of thousands of Morsi supporters have been camped out in Rabaa Al-Adawiya Square in Nasr City in north Cairo since 28 June.
