Supporters of ousted President Mohamed Mursi stayed behind their barricades at two camps in Cairo on Tuesday while Egypt's interim leaders debated how to end their protests.

No police crackdown appeared imminent despite frequent warnings from the military-installed government that the protesters should pack up and leave peacefully.

The head of Egypt's second largest Islamist group, the Nour party, meanwhile said Al Azhar, a leading religious authority, would host a meeting "very soon" bringing together people who have tabled initiatives for ending the political crisis.
