Egyptian Protesters Defy Government Warnings

Face-off with the military regime


Thousands of supporters of ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi are defying a new warning from the military-backed cabinet by continuing their sit-ins in the capital, Cairo.

The country's interim leaders have ordered police to end ongoing protests at two sites in the city.

But Mr Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood and other loyalists say they have no option but to continue the month-long sit-ins.
