Egyptian state television showed footage of two men armed with automatic weapons at a pro-Morsi march on Cairo’s 15 May Bridge on Friday.

The march was moving from the 15 May Bridge towards Ramses Square near downtown Cairo, where the Muslim Brotherhood and its allies are gathering on Friday to protest against Wednesday’s violent crackdown by police.

On Wednesday, security forces dispersed pro-Morsi sit-ins in Cairo and Giza sparking nationwide violence that left hundreds dead and thousands injured, according to the last official figures.
