Supporters of Egypt's government rally in Cairo today

Today more than 100,000 Islamists are staging a show of support of Egypt's President Morsi in the suburb of Nasser City. These rallies come ahead of the national mass protests planned for June 30 by opponents of Morsi's government. Today's demonstration was called to denounce violence but some spoke of “smashing” opposition protesters on June 30.

Travellers should be aware of the ongoing political tensions leading up to massive June 30 demonstrations. Always avoid public gatherings or demonstrations as the situation can turn violent without warning.
