Security forces dispersed a small pro-Mohamed Morsi protest in Downtown Cairo Wednesday evening, according to a security source cited by Reuters' Aswat Masriya.

The Facebook page of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) published Wednesday evening a video of tens of young men protesting in one street in Downtown Cairo. The page claimed that the protest was organised suddenly in Tahrir Square. 

It is unclear if the video was shot in Tahrir or not. 

The Muslim Brotherhood-led National Alliance to Support Legitimacy has called on its supporters to protest on 25 January, the fourth anniversary of the popular revolution that led to the ouster of autocratic president Hosni Mubarak.

The Brotherhood's political arm, the FJP was dissolved in 2014, whereas the Muslim Brotherhood was designated as a terrorist organisation in December 2013.
