President Mohamed Mursi’s opponents continued their sit-in by the presidential palace for the third day in the row on Sunday as an increase in the number of tents is now seen in the area. 

The protesters have closed the Merghany Street to traffic and have placed cement blocks and wooden barriers in all directions before a podium which has been set in front of the Heliopolis sporting club.  

About 60 tents have been set up by Amr Ben Abdel Aziz Mosque near the palace, the state news agency reported. 

Chanting against the regime, the protesters have formed popular committees to protect participants in today’s planned demonstrations.
