Supporters of deposed president Morsi have announced that they will begin a "Martyrs" million-man march on Tuesday at noon.

The march is organised by the pro-Morsi National Alliance in Support of Legitimacy, an Islamist coalition led by the Muslim Brotherhood, who fielded Morsi for president.

The coalition will also hold a commemoration ceremony for the 51 Islamist protesters who died on Monday after clashes erupted between pro-Morsi protesters and the army in front of the Republican Guard.

Protesters demanding the return of Morsi to power have been staging a sit-in for 11 days in front of Rabaa Al-Adawiya Mosque in the densely populated suburb of Nasr City.
