Tens of Morsi loyalists have stormed Friday the Abbasiya Hospital for Mental illnesses, climbing through the fences before setting camp in the hospital's garden.

The move comes after roughly five thousand pro-Morsi protesters, according to Ahram Arabic Website, blocked the Salah Salem road in both directions near the Abbasiya Hospital, causing the traffic to come to a standstill.

Pictures of storming the hospital grounds have been circulating the social media websites by passengers in grounded vehicles. 

Morsi supporters have staged different marches across Cairo and some Egyptian governorates to demand that deposed president Morsi be reinstated.

Morsi was removed on 3 July after popular street protests nationwide demanded his resignation.
