Egypt bracing for million-man anti-Morsi rally

Egyptians are gearing up for yet another mass rally against the deposed Muslim Brotherhood government of Mohamed Morsi.

Sunday’s million-man rally dubbed “Popular Legitimacy and Protection of National Independence” is due as supporters of the ousted leader continue their sit-in protest in the Nasr city of the capital Cairo.

Dozens were killed and over fourteen hundred others injured in the latest clashes between rival rallies nationwide.

Meanwhile, militants in the country’s restive Sinai Peninsula have blown up a gas pipeline to Jordan near the city of el-Arish.

On Friday, tens of thousands of Muslim Brotherhood activists and their supporters took to the streets across the country to protest the army’s Wednesday coup that overthrew Morsi. Casualties occurred during clashes between pro-Morsi and opposition protesters and security forces. Egypt is still tense following the recent developments.
