Egypt Islamist calls for mass protest, Brotherhood undecided
The protest will take place at the Rabaa Al-Adawiya mosque in Cairo's Nasr City. The Muslim Brotherhood remains undecided over whether to join the protest.

Muslim Brotherhood spokesperson Ahmed Aref on Sunday said the group was undecided over whether to take part in the protest.
