At the request of Egypt's army chief, Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, many Egyptians took to the street Friday to give him a mandate for what he calls a "war against terrorism" on Islamists.
His call drew a huge response from those opposed to Mohammed Morsi, but it also brought out large numbers of supporters of the ousted president who is allied with the Muslim Brotherhood.
As the following photographs show, anti-Morsi protesters rallied in Cairo's Tahrir Square ...
... while those allied with Morsi gathered near the Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque.
