Egyptian security forces closed all roads leading to Mustafa Mahmoud Square in the upscale Cairo neighborhood of Muhandisin to prevent demonstrators from reaching the square, eyewitnesses told Anadolu Agency on Friday.
Pro-Morsi demonstrators are staging a new wave of rallies in Cairo, Giza and several Egyptian cities today to protest the violent dispersal of their main protests camps in Cairo and Giza.

Egypt has been in a state of turmoil since security forces on Wednesday violently dispersed two major protest camps set up by supporters of Morsi in Cairo's Rabaa al-Adawiya Square and Giza's Nahda Square.

The Health Ministry has said that at least 638 people were killed in nationwide violence since Wednesday, including 288 in Rabaa and 87 in Nahda.

However, the official death toll remains far below that given by the National Alliance for the Defense of Legitimacy, a coalition of pro-Morsi Islamist parties and figures, which has put the number of deaths from the Rabaa sit-in alone at some 2,600.
