Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood-led coalition has called for mass demonstrations across the country starting Friday until the trial of the country's ousted president begins.
Some fear the trial will mark a new cycle of turmoil in Egypt. Since the coup, Egypt witnessed one of its worst bloodbaths when security forces violently cleared protest camps in Cairo, leaving hundreds dead and sparked weeks of unrest.
Morsi has been detained in undisclosed military facility since the coup. He has spoken twice to his family by telephone.
