Rivals rally in Egypt on Eid holiday

Supporters and opponents of deposed President Mohamed Morsi are rallying in the capital to celebrate Eid al-Fitr.

    Muslims in Egypt are celebrating the Eid holiday, but this year separate open spaces have been allocated for supporters and opponents of the deposed President Mohamed Morsi.

    Demonstrations in Cairo's Nasr City continue despite warning by Egypt's interim leader on Wednesday for protesters to end their sit-ins.
