Backing Mursi

, November 4, 2013

Supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood and ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi shout slogans against the military and Interior Ministry, while gesturing with four fingers, during a protest in front of riot policemen outside Egyptian High Court in Cairo on November 4. Mursi struck a defiant tone on the first day of his trial on Monday, chanting 'Down with military rule', and calling himself the country's only 'legitimate' president. Mursi, an Islamist who was toppled by the army in July after mass protests against him, appeared angry and interrupted the session repeatedly, prompting a judge to adjourn the case. The "Rabaa" or "four" gesture is in reference to the police clearing of Rabaa Al-Adawiya protest camp on August 14. Reuters/Mohamed Abd El Ghany
