Thousands of pro-Mursi protesters take to Turkey's streets
ISTANBUL (AFP) - Thousands of supporters of Egypt's ousted leader Mohamed Mursi took to the streets in Turkey on Saturday to denounce "massacres" of his loyalists.
Some 4,000 people gathered at a mosque in Istanbul shouting "Down with (army chief Abdel Fattah) al-Sisi" and "Mursi in power!", an AFP photographer reported.
Carrying Egyptian flags, the protesters also implored the Muslim world to "help the Egyptian people who are being massacred".
In the central Turkish city of Konya, nearly 10,000 people turned out in support of Mr Mursi and his embattled loyalists, according to the Dogan news agency.
