Egyptian media accuse Muslim Brotherhood supporters of trying to organize mass protests in the country through social networks.
Amru Adib, the host of MBC Masr, announced on Friday night a recording in which one of the organization’s leaders urged supporters to “gather near the houses until large groups are formed and then go to the square.”
Interior Ministry forces detained the son of one of the Muslim Brotherhood leaders in Saad Katatni prison for attempting to organize an unauthorized protest rally.
At the same time, in social networks and on Islamist-controlled television channels, videos are distributed with shots of mass protests that allegedly take place in Egyptian cities.
However, according to Egyptian media, it is about old shots, or shots with football fans who took to the streets on Friday after the match between the two most popular teams in Egypt, Al-Ahly and Zamalek.
There are no protests on the main Cairo square, car traffic is open. But at the same time, security measures were strengthened in the city center, additional police forces were deployed.
In turn, Egyptian MP Mustafa Bakri wrote on his microblog on Twitter that the Qatari satellite channel Al Jazeera uses small crowds and old videos to provoke unrest in the country. He halt the Egyptians “not to follow the Muslim Brotherhood, who use the situation in their interests.” Otherwise, according to him, Egypt will face the fate of neighboring Libya.
