There has been a ratcheting up of tension among supporters of ousted president Mohamed Mursi after Egypt's interim government ordered the police to end their sit-ins.

It is not clear what methods the security forces will use but it is feared the country faces the prospect of further bloodshed.

A leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohamed El-Beltagy accused the military of going against its own mandate if it uses force to clear the protesters.
