Dozens march to Central Auditing Organisation headquarters, halting traffic for a few hours in eastern Cairo on Salah Salem - a major thoroughfare - the first day of the work week to demand ousted president Mohamed Morsi be reinstated.

Thousands of democratically-elected Morsi supporters – deposed by the military on 3 July following mass protests for his ouster – maintain a sit-in in Rabaa Square close to Salah Salem Road and Nahda Square in Giza and have been staging daily marches around Cairo and other cities across Egypt.

The Muslim Brotherhood – from which Morsi hails – has repeatedly announced it will not accept any negotiations that do not involve the return of Morsi to power.
