Thousands of Egyptian protesters had gathered in Cairo after Friday prayers to demonstrate against military rule, Al Jazeera reported.

According to the report, military and security force were deployed around Egypt's capital city.

"Security forces have clearly announced that mass gatherings or sit-ins will be quickly dispersed," an Al Jazeera correspondent in Cairo said.

Earlier in the week, a group of supporters of deposed Islamist President Mohamed Morsi called on Egyptians to hold "Friday of Martyrs" protests against the military takeover that ousted him seven weeks ago.
