Ahram Online , Monday 29 Jul 2013

Thousands marched in Cairo late Sunday to condemn the killing of dozens of pro-Morsi protesters a day a earlier.

Marchers chanted anti-military and anti-police slogans in the capital's Nasr City district where deadly clashes took place on Saturday between security forces and Morsi supporters, state news agency MENA reported.

Traffic was brought to a standstill, but the march passed off peacefully, MENA added.

Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood and the interior ministry have blamed each other for igniting the bloodshed on Saturday near the pro-Morsi protest at the Rabaa Al-Adawiya mosque.

Egypt has been rocked by unrest since Islamist president Mohamed Morsi was ousted on 3 July following nationwide protests against his rule. Scores have been killed and hundreds wounded in violence between rival factions.
