Thousands of supporters of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi return to the streets of Cairo Sunday, calling for a return of a civilian-ruled Egypt. So far, the Muslim Brotherhood has refused to accept what it calls the illegal coup and has publicly demanded Mursi's return. They have no plans to quit. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) DR KHALID HANNAFI, MEMBER OF THE FREEDOM AND JUSTICE PARTY IN CAIRO, SAYING: "The march is part of our peaceful activities, that call for the return of a civilian, democratic country. It is against the violation of the rights of the people and the negation of their right to take part in choosing their constitution and president. These activities will continue and will not stop until our rights are returned to us." Thousands also continue a sit-in despite warnings from the army-installed government that they should leave peacefully or face action. An undeclared truce appears to have taken hold as Muslims observe the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.
