Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood Calls for Mass Protests

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has called for nationwide protests to take place on Tuesday, a day after a deadly shooting at the site of a sit-in by its supporters in Cairo, which left at least 51 dead.

In a statement quoted by Al Jazeera, the interim administration expressed "deep regret" for those killed in violence in Cairo on Monday, adding that it has formed a judicial committee to investigate the events. The statement called on protesters not to approach any military or "other vital installations".
