Indonesia, Malaysia protests over deadly Egypt crackdown
JAKARTA (AFP) - Hundreds of Muslims demonstrated in Indonesia and Malaysia on Friday against a crackdown on the protest camps of Egypt's Islamists which left almost 600 people dead.
It came as Cairo braced for more protests after supporters of Mohamed Morsi, ousted as president in a military coup last month, called for a "Friday of anger", and the UN urged "maximum restraint" from all sides.
In the Indonesian capital Jakarta, about 1,000 protesters converged on the United States embassy after Friday prayers.
US President Barack Obama has cancelled a joint US-Egyptian military exercise but has stopped short of suspending Washington's billion-dollar aid to Egypt.
