Supporters of Egypt's deposed President Mohamed Mursi uphold their sit-in outside the Rabaa Al-Adawiya Mosque for the 13th day in a row, demanding the return of "legal and constitutional legitimacy" and the abolishing of decisions that followed June 30, reported the State news agency.

Hundreds of thousands of the protesters holding a sit-in at Rabaa Al-Adawiya performed the night prayers on Tuesday, according to the Middle East News Agency.

Egypt's army has ousted Islamist President Mohamed Mursi, suspended the Islamist-drafted constitution and appointed an interim president in response to mass demonstrations that swept the country on June 30.
