Brotherhood spokesman Murad Ali said the marchers had set off from the Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque in northern Cairo, near where at least 72 were shot dead by security forces on Saturday.

The army, saying it was aware of the planned march, had issued a statement urging protesters "not to come close to military facilities in general, and the headquarters of military intelligence specifically."
