Sinai-based militants call on Pro-Morsi students to continue protest against interim-government

An al-Qaida-inspired group based in Sinai is urging Egyptian students who support the ousted Islamist president to continue their protests against the new iterim government.

The message from the group, whose name is Arabic for the "Partisans of Jerusalem," was posted on a militant website Saturday.

The group has claimed responsibility for attacks including last month's killing of a senior security officer, saying it was retaliation for the arrest of female Morsi supporters.

Morsi's supporters have kept up protests since his ouster on 3 July, which followed demonstrations by millions calling for him to leave office.
