Al-Qaeda militants join Morsi supporters’ demonstration in Cairo – mass media

Al-Qaeda militants have joined pro-Morsi protesters in their demonstration in Nahda Square in Cairo, the Egyptian Al-Masry Al-Youmre newspaper reports on its website on Monday citing one of the protesters, who spoke in front of people on the main platform of the square.

Mr. Dayo Adeyeye, a governorship aspirant in the Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State, has described the rejection of the consensus arrangement proposed by President Goodluck Jonathan to select the party’s governorship candidate in 2014 election as gross indiscipline.
