Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood called for a march in Cairo on Thursday, a day after bloody crackdown on its supporters who occupied protest camps demanding the reinstatement of president Mohamed Morsi.

The Brotherhood said the planned march would set off from the Al-Iman mosque in the capital "to protest the death of their relatives".

At least 464 people were killed in Wednesday's crackdown on the two protest camps in Cairo and subsequent nationwide violence.
