Abu Deif died on December 6, 2012 during clashes between supporters and rivals of Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi. Egyptian Islamist groups are planning a mass protest in Alexandria on Friday, a move that will raise tensions a day before the final stage of a referendum on a new constitution that has split the nation.
