A shooting has reportedly occurred at a march in Cairo in support of ousted President Mohame Morsi, as Egypt braces for protests. BBC News reported that the shooting, which resulted in at least three deaths, occurred at a gathering of supporters who were marching down a location where Morsi is believed to be under house arrest. The former president’s supporters are demanding that he be reinstated as the country’s leader, and are protesting against the military’s actions to begin rounding up and arresting members of the Muslim Brotherhood, the political party that was behind Morsi’s election last year. The “Friday of Rejection” is apparently being organized by a number of Islamist groups, including members of the Muslim Brotherhood, who have called for a peaceful protest. Some, however, are calling on extreme actions, Reuters reported, with crowds outside the Rabaa Adaweya mosque in a Cairo chanting “Down, down with military rule!” and “We call for jihad in the whole country.” The army has sent extra armored vehicles and set up makeshift barricades in the area where Morsi supporters continue gathering.
