Islamists cancel Cairo rallies for 'security reasons'

Islamists cancel Cairo rallies for 'security reasons'

An Islamist alliance opposed to the Egyptian military’s ouster of president Mohamed Morsi called off rallies that they planned to stage in Cairo on Sunday, citing concerns about security.

She said some other marches were taking place, however, but it was not immediately possible to confirm.

In central Cairo’s Dokki neighbourhood, residents took over a mosque the Islamists had planned to use as a starting point for a march and put up a poster of a slain policeman, an AFP correspondent said.

Vigilantes stopped cars with bearded people and took them out, the correspondent said.
