Supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi staged a fresh round of morning protests on Friday, their first weekly rallies since the inauguration of former army chief Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi as Egypt's President.

Limited rallies set out in southern Cairo's Maadi neighborhood, the coastal city of Alexandria and the Nile Delta province of Sharqiya, with protesters chanting slogans against the military-backed authorities and the inauguration of al-Sisi, who led the army to unseat Morsi.

Pro-Morsi demonstrators also staged a rally with motorbikes in the canal city of Ismailia, amid chants against the military-backed authorities.

Friday's rallies were called by the pro-Morsi National Alliance for the Defense of Legitimacy.

Al-Sisi was inaugurated Egypt's President on Sunday after he swept last month's presidential election.

Ever since Morsi's ouster by the military last year, his supporters have been staging almost daily rallies to demand his reinstatement.

While Morsi's supporters term his ouster by the military as a "military coup", opponents describe it as a "military-backed revolution".
