Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - A demonstration was held on Friday in the southern governorate of Ma'an in support of deposed Egyptian President Mohammed Mursi, with protesters condemning the Egyptian authorities' violent crackdown on protesters in Cairo and other Egyptian cities.

The demonstration launched following Friday midday prayer, calling for what protesters expressed as "the return of political legitimacy in Egypt," and expressing that the Egyptian forces carried a bloody coup against the "legitimate" democratically-elected President Mursi.

Protesters called on the Jordanian government to expel the Egyptian Ambassador in Amman, and denounced the stance of a number of Arab states that support the military and temporary government in Egypt.

They also blasted a number of media outlets and networks that sided with the "criminal military rule," according to their expression.

Friday's protest comes as Egypt has been witnessing a violent crackdown by state security forces against Pro-Mursi supporters in Rabaa al-Adawiya square in Cairo, Al Nahda in Giza, and several other Egyptian cities, culminating in the death of over 500 people, and the injury of thousands.
