Egypt's army has said it will guarantee the right to peaceful protest ahead of the traditional day for major rallies.

Muslim Brotherhood supporters are expected to rally today after the army deposed President Mohammed Morsi.

New interim leader Adly Mahmud Mansour, the top judge of Egypt's constitutional court, has pledged to hold elections based on "the genuine people's will".
