Ten of thousands of supporters of Egypt’s ousted president marched Friday on the streets of Cairo and across the country, leading to clashes with opponents and security forces that injured dozens.
The marches during the Muslim holiday of Eid el-Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan, come as Egypt’s government increasingly looks poised to break up sit-in protests by supporters of President Mohammed Morsi when the festivities end.
“Kill as much as you like. I won’t move an inch,” Brotherhood leader Mohamed el-Beltagui said. “We will offer a million martyrs.”
