Political and pro-democracy groups are planning to hold mass protest in Cairo to demand the ruling military respect a July deadline to step down.
Friday’s protest comes amid heightened tension after 11 people were killed in clashes that broke out on Wednesday when unidentified group attacked protesters staging a sit-in outside the ministry of defence in Cairo to call for an end to military rule.
"I’m telling the military council… enough bloodshed, enough fabricated crisis, enough unleashing of thugs on the public, enough destruction… we want them to transfer power to an independent transitional authority tomorrow,” Akrami Darwish, a protester, said on Friday.
