Islamist online call for protests in Egypt

Islamists in Egypt are calling for protesters to take to the streets today in what they say is a ‘battle’ for their Muslim identity.

The Muslim Brotherhood has been declared a terrorist organisation there and public demonstrations are banned. But a ‘Muslim Youth Uprising’ campaign on social media is urging people to take to the streets today to protest against the authorities. Three videos, trending in Egypt, reflect the strong sentiment on both sides.

The government has deployed armoured vehicles in Cairo and issued a warning that any armed protesters will face their weapons.
