Supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi organized rallies and human chains on Tuesday to demand his reinstatement.

They marched along the Ring Road in Maadi, south of Cairo, to protest what they call a "military coup" against the elected president.

Protesters also organized a human chain outside the constitutional court headquarters in Maadi to demand Morsi's reinstatement and "punishment of the killers of martyrs".

The demonstrators carried Egyptian flags and posters of Morsi and those killed in clashes with security forces.

At least 140 pro-Morsi protesters were killed last month in clashes with security forces outside the Republican Guards compound in Cairo and near Rabaa al-Adawiya square, the main protest site of the ousted president's loyalists.

Pro-Morsi demonstrators also marched from Rabaa al-Adawiya Square to Salah Salem Street in Cairo, chanting anti-military slogans.

Marches were also organized from Al-Fath Mosque in Ramses Square, downtown Cairo, and from eastern Cairo toward the Rabaa square.

The National Alliance for the Defense of Legitimacy, a coalition of mostly Islamist parties and groups that support Morsi, has called for mass demonstrations on Tuesday to demand his reinstatement.
