Mursi supporter rallies fail to stop coup

Supporters of Mohamed Morsi staged counter-demonstrations in a bid to keep the former president in power

Mursi supporter rallies fail to stop coup
Supporters of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi demonstrate at the Rabaa al Adawiya Mosque in the suburb of Nasr City on July 2, 2013 in Cairo, Egypt. In a statement on July 1, the Egyptian Army asked Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi to resolve mass demonstrations against his continued rule or face intervention by the military within 48 hours. Crowds of pro- and anti-government protesters gathered in locations across Egypt on June 30, the day of a series of nation-wide mass demonstrations entitled 'Tamarod', or 'Rebel'. The 'Tamarod' campaign, organised by a coalition of opposition political groups and planned to take place on the first anniversary of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi's election to the country's Presidency, aims to bring down the government of President Morsi through country-wide demonstrations.
