Egyptian authorities have again canceled plans to disperse huge crowds of supporters for deposed president Mohammed Morsi, who have vowed to die rather than end their sit-in demonstration in Nasr city district of the capital and Nahda Square.
Morsi continues to be detained at an undisclosed location, and his detention has been extended by another 15 days.
The rallies by his supports have virtually shut down the city, but security officials insist they will disperse the protesters. One official claimed the scheduled Monday night maneuver to end the sit-in was called off because dispersal plans were leaked to the media.Jewish Press News Briefs
