Egypt geared up for another day of protests Friday as the Muslim Brotherhood and supporters of former President Mohammed Morsi planned to take to the streets to resist the military's overthrow of the Islamist leader.

The calls for demonstrations come amid a widening crackdown on the Brotherhood, and as Reuters reported that Egypt's interim prime minister expressed the hope that a new government would be sworn in by the end of next week.
