Demonstrators, convening in front of Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque in Cairo's Nasr City, held pro-Islam and pro-Egypt banners and flags, and signs supportive of Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, the Egyptian news website Ahram Online reported.
A number of prominent Islamist figures took the stage to encourage signing of a pro-Morsi petition to counter an anti-Morsi signature drive.
Privately owned Egyptian channels ONTV and CBC-TV reported their crews were assaulted by members of the crowd while covering the event, Ahram Online reported.
