Supporters of Egypt's deposed president Mohamed Morsi staged a new round of fresh rallies on Friday against what they describe as a "military coup" against the elected leader.

Over the past 113 days, anti-coup demonstrators have been staging rallies against the July 3 military overthrow of the democratically-elected president.

Friday's protests were called by the National Alliance for the Defense of Legitimacy, a coalition of pro-democracy groups, to mark 100 days since the president's ouster.

"More than 100 days have passed since the bloody military coup and the results are bitter at all levels, let alone the suppression of anti-coup protests," the coalition said in a statement on Thursday.

Morsi, Egypt's first freely elected leader, was removed from power by the powerful military following massive, well-coordinated demonstrations against his presidency that began on June 30.
