Christians in Egypt are continuing their call for the country's top military general to step down and for justice to be delivered, following the death of 12 people in sectarian violence on Sunday.

In the neighbourhood of Imbaba, where the violence first flared, Muslims and Christians march together in a bid to heal a fractured community.

Al Jazeera's Jamal Elshayyal reports on how the clashes are resonating throughout the capital, Cairo.
