Egypt: Morsi loyalists protest outside Cairo cabinet building

Several hundred supporters of Egypt’s deposed president are protesting near the Cabinet building in central Cairo against the country’s new interim government.
The demonstrators say the new leadership is illegitimate and demand that ousted PresidentMohamed Morsi be reinstated.

Egypt’s new 34-member cabinet was sworn in on Tuesday. It features several prominent figures from the country’s liberal and secular factions, as well as three women and three Christians.
There are no ministers from Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood or other Islamist groups. The interim government is part of a military-backed transition plan following the 3 July coup that deposed Morsi, Egypt’s first freely elected president. EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton is in Cairo for talks with Egypt’s interim leaders.
