Pro-Morsi protesters march on Cairo's Salah Salem Road

Morsi supporters cause congestion on Cairo's busy Salah Salem Sunday to press for his reinstatement

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.
