CAIRO, July 1 (UPI) — Huge protests in Egypt left at least 14 people dead and 900 injured, authorities said. Activists gave President Mohamed Morsi a Tuesday deadline to step down.

Deaths were reported in Cairo, the Assiut district, Kafr el-Sheik and other areas, al-Masry al-Youm reported.

On the second day of the protests, Tamarod, the rebel campaign that helped organize them, said if Morsi doesn't leave office by Tuesday evening, a civil disobedience campaign will include a march on the presidential place, Ahram Online said.
