A vigil in Cairo as supporters of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi continue to call for his reinstatement. They have been holding open ended protests since the former senior Muslim Brotherhood leader was removed from office July 3 by the army following mass protests against him. They also reject any criminal charges brought against Mursi. (SOUNDBITE)(Arabic) ISLAMIST LEADER, SAFWAT HEGAZY, SAYING: "Of course anything said by the dictators and the junta and the traitors who betrayed the people and betrayed their promises, and who betrayed the revolution, is no a surprise at all. And these people are the ones who should be put on trial for high treason. Dr. Mursi is amongst the most honorable people in Egypt and one of the most honorable people to have ruled Egypt." Earlier on Saturday state prosecutors said they were examining complaints of spying, inciting violence and ruining the economy against the deposed Islamist leader. (SOUNDBITE)(Arabic) EGYPTIAN ACTOR, WAGDI AL ARABY, SAYING: "The people who are making these accusations, in order to get rid of everything to do with Dr. Mursi completely… I would say if Dr. Mursi disappeared, well the country has millions of Mursi's. The issue is not about Mursi. The issue is building a state of rights and justice." Mursi is being held at an undisclosed location -- but has not yet been charged with any crime. The military says it deposed Mursi in a justified response to popular demand after millions of people demonstrated against him. The Brotherhood calls it a coup that reversed democracy.
