An Egyptian protester shouts anti-President Mohammed Morsi slogans during a protest in Tahrir Square, the focal point of Egyptian uprising, in Cairo, Egypt, Friday, June 28, 2013. Arabic reads, "down with Muslim brotherhood rule, June 30 in front of the presidential palace." Thousands of backers of Egypt's Islamist president rallied Friday in Cairo in a show of support ahead of planned opposition protests this weekend demanding his removal, as passengers swamped the capital’s international airport to leave, fearing widespread violence. The opposition plans to bring out massive crowds on Sunday in protests nationwide, vowing to force President Mohammed Morsi to step down.
