ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Supporters of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi staged one of their largest protest marches in weeks on Friday (November 15), a day after Egypt's military-backed government lifted a three month state of emergency. Thousands of demonstrators marched in different neighborhoods of Cairo and in several cities around the country. In the Nasr City neighborhood of the capital, protesters carrying pictures of Mursi and posters bearing the black four-fingered "Raba'a" symbol that shows solidarity with protesters killed by the security forces, marched towards the Presidential Palace. Mursi was ousted by the military on July 3 after mass protests by Egyptians disillusioned with the elected Islamist president's year in office. Following his ousting, supporters of Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist group that backed him, staged daily protests and set up two ongoing sit-ins that the police and army cleared by force in August, killing hundreds.
