Muslim Brotherhood's candidate to join Tuesday's mass protest at Tahrir on Tuesday evening to disqualify Ahmed Shafiq from race

Muslim Brotherhood's official twitter account admin @IkhwanWeb confirmed to Ahram Online that Mohamed Morsi, the candidate for the presidential elections set for 16/17 June, will attend Tuesday's mass protest at Tahrir square.

On Monday, the Brotherhood announced that they will take part in Tuesday's mass protests called for by a number of revolutionary forces.

Eliminated  candidates Abdel-Moneim Abou El-Fotouh, Khaled Ali and Hamdeen Sabbahi are leading their own marches at 5pm from three different mosques in Cairo heading to Tahrir.

Protests broke out nationwide on Saturtday after the pronouncement of the verdict against Hosni Mubarak, his former interior minister Habib El-Adly, six aides and Mubarak's sons, Gamal and Alaa Mubarak.

Hosni Mubarak and El-Adly were each given one life sentence each in jail – many protesters decry that the two got off too easy – while all other defendants were found not guilty of their alleged crimes.
