Egyptian authorities on 26 July ordered ousted president Mohammed Morsi to be detained for 15 days pending further investigations on charges of conspiring to carry out 'hostile acts' in the country, reported state-run newspaper al-Ahram online. Morsi's backers and opponents were, meanwhile, rallying for rival demonstrations across the country, mainly in Cairo. Scores of anti-Islamist activists were turning out at central Cairo's Tahrir Square in response to a call made by army chief Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, who engineered Morsi's ouster. Photo by Ahmed Asad
