Morsi Supporters Vow To Continue Protests

Want the ousted president reinstated

|

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has pledged to continue its "peaceful" resistance to the army's removal of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi last week.

Supporters demanding Mr Morsi's reinstatement have been staging mass protests in Cairo near a barracks where he is believed to be held.

The Muslim Brotherhood statement comes a day after warrants were issued for the arrest of other senior figures.

On Monday, more than 50 Morsi loyalists were killed in clashes with the army.

Mr Morsi's removal—a year after he was elected—followed protests by millions of people across Egypt.
