CAIRO, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- Two groups of anti-government demonstrators marched Thursday evening from Abbasiya and Matariya in the Egyptian capital of Cairo towards Presidential Palace to protest against Wednesday's deadly clashes that killed at least five people and injured over 1,000, state-run Al-Ahram online reported.
Meanwhile, a third rally from Nasr City's iconic mosque of Raba 'a al-Adawiya also went to join the protests outside the presidential palace, according to official MENA news agency.
The protesters demand trial of those who assaulted the opposition sit-in outside the palace on Wednesday, calling on Morsi to revoke the constitutional declaration he issued two weeks ago which gave him sweeping powers and sparked bloody confrontations between his supporters and opponents.
Meanwhile, more protesters are joining the ongoing sit-in in Tahrir Square to protest Morsi's declaration and its ramifications.
On Nov. 22, Morsi issued a new constitutional declaration which rules that all laws, decrees and constitutional declarations issued by the president since he came into office on June 30 are final and unchallengeable by anybody, which triggered a new wave of nationwide protests.
Morsi later promised that the declaration was only temporary and would be withdrawn as soon as the draft constitution is approved by Egyptians in the upcoming referendum, which was scheduled on Dec. 15. But the move failed to quench the massive protests.
