Supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi protested across Egypt's governorates on Friday.

Thousands gathered at Alexandria's Al-Qaed Ibrahim Mosque and chanted anti-military slogans such as "[army chief] El-Sisi, Morsi is my president."

In Gharbiya's Tanta hundreds called for Morsi's return to the presidency.  

In Sharqiya's Zagazig protesters chanted slogans such as "Say it strong, Morsi is the president" and "We are not afraid of the thugs, we will protect ourselves by legitimacy."

The army committed a coup against Egypt's legitimate president, Ahmed Shehata, the Freedom and Justice Party's leader in Zagazig, told Al-Ahram Arabic news website.

Hundreds gathered in Fayoum after Friday prayers. They called for army chief Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi to stand trial for "carrying out a coup" against Morsi.

In Upper Egypt's Beni Suef, thousands called for the reinstatement of Morsi and the suspended constitution. They chanted against El-Sisi and the 'pro-coup' media.

Thousands rallied in Marsa Matrouh in north western after Friday prayers.

Tens of buses transported Morsi supporters to Cairo and Giza from across the country on Friday.

Tens of thousands of Morsi supporters have been roaming the streets of Cairo after noon prayers causing traffic mayhem in parts of the capital.
