CAIRO, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- Egypt's security forces started on Thursday evening to disperse a new sit-in supporting ousted President Mohamed Morsi in Cairo, state TV reported.
Some 3,000 of Morsi's proponents gathered outside Iman Mosque in Makram Ebid Street to bid farewell to around 300 people that died during the security forces' dispersal of their two old camps.
TV footage showed several ambulances transferring the dead bodies from Iman Mosque to nearby morgues.
The National Alliance for Supporting Legitimacy, a pro-Morsi alliance of some 30 Islamist groups led by the Muslim Brotherhood, called on Egyptians to stage a nationwide march dubbed "Friday of Anger" to protest the violent dispersal of their sit-ins.
The death toll from violence has reached almost 600 across the country since the security forces started their dispersal operation in Cairo and Giza early on Wednesday.
