CAIRO, - Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood organized a 760-km (470-mile)-long human chain of supporters across the country on Thursday to back the group's presidential candidate Mohamed Mursi in a show of strength ahead of next week's historic vote.

From Cairo to Aswan, members of the Brotherhood and its Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), held posters of Mohamed Mursi, the Brotherhood's alternative choice to the group's initial candidate Khairat Shater, who was disqualified over a military court conviction.

Rows of activists and supporters, some wearing T-Shirts and caps emblazoned with a print of Mursi's face, held up campaign posters also showing the former engineer's bearded face and a campaign slogan reading: "Mursi, for president of Egypt".

The event, organized by Mursi's presidential campaign, highlighted the Brotherhood's powerful network of supporters across the country.
