ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Thousands of protesters rallied in the Yemeni capital Sanaa on Monday in support of Egypt's ousted President Mohamed Mursi. Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood urged people to rise up against the army, which they accuse of a military coup to topple the leader, threatening an escalation in Egypt's political crisis. Protesters rallied in Sanaa carrying posters of Mursi and chanting slogans in his support. Large crowds of women demonstrators could be seen marching in the streets of the capital, with chants being led on megaphones. At least 51 people were killed on Monday when the Egyptian army opened fire on supporters of Mursi, in the deadliest incident since the elected Islamist leader was toppled by the military five days ago.
