The Muslim Brotherhood is calling for more protests on Friday after prayers, according to a Tweet by Ikhwanweb, an official account of the organization.
Supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi are planning to protest in all areas of the country. The National Alliance to Support Legitimacy called for the protests and urged demonstrators to protest in subway stations and public squares near mosques, according to the Egypt Independent website.
Meanwhile, Amnesty international called on Thursday for Egypt to end its policy of detaining Syrian refugees. Some refugees have decided to leave Egypt because of the “hostile conditions.”
“Refugees arrested face a choice between accepting deportation or prolonged and unlawful detention. Dozens of families have been forcibly separated as a result,” said the statement. In addition, “Lawyers told Amnesty International that in at least two instances refugees were collectively deported back to Damascus, Syria.”
