Morsi Opponents Flood Tahrir amid Rival Demos and Talks on Govt.
[An Nahar] Opponents of Egypt's deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi packed Tahrir Square in their tens of thousands on Sunday to show the world his ouster was not a military coup but the reflection of the people's will.
Staged as a counter-demonstration two days after Islamist rallies went
kaboom! into deadly violence, the protest raised the stakes as the country's interim leaders struggled to put together a new government.
As the crowds grew, wave after wave of military aircraft skimmed over the capital, with one formation leaving behind long trails of smoke in black, white and red -- the colors of the Egyptian flag.
