In Cairo, dueling protests -- there were supporters of Mohamed Mursi and supporters of the military operation that drove the Egyptian leader from office. Anger from the pro-Mursi camp has been directed at Army Chief Abel Fatal al-Sisi who many consider a traitor. SOUNDBITE: Unnamed Mursi Supporter Saying: (Arabic) "The president brought Sisi in and planted him in the soil, and Sisi turned his back on Mursi and ousted him. This aggression won't be allowed." Many in this crowd, which is being closely watched by the military (helicopter), want to see the democratically elected Mursi reinstated. Particularly galling to them was Sisi's recent call for mass demonstrations in 30 cities. So far, two people have been killed in Alexandria and dozens injured. The ousted Egyptian president is reportedly being investigated for murder.
