    Supporters of deposed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi have found an innovative way to publicise their sit-ins - using toy drones.

    A camera is attached to the remote-controlled toy, which flies above the protests at Rabaa square and films and photographs people.

    The small drone is banned as a propaganda tool, but activists have brought in some from outside Egypt.

    Al Jazeera's Jane Ferguson reports from Rabaa square, Cairo.
