Egyptians sign petition against Morsi

Frustrated with the president, as many as two million are adding their names to a list to call for elections.

    A group opposed to Egypt's President Mohamed Morsi says it is collecting millions of signatures against him.

    It is calling itself "Tamarod" which means "Rebellion".

    The campaign seems to be gaining momentum as the group says it has collected more than two million signatures across Egypt in ten days.

    Tamarod is also planning a day of protest around the end of June.

    Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston reports from Cairo.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
