Hundreds of thousands of opponents of Egypt's Islamist president have poured into the streets in Cairo and across much of the country on the first anniversary of Mohammed Morsi's inauguration.
The crowds were waving Egyptian flags and carrying posters of Morsi crossed out in red in Cairo's Tahrir square. Back in 2011, that was the birthplace of the uprising against Hosni Mubarak.
Nearby, thousands of Morsi's supporters gathered outside a mosque.
Amid fears of clashes between Morsi's opponents and supporters, banks closed early and most government offices shut down.
