A coalition of Egyptian Islamists called an end to rallies on Friday that sparked deadly clashes nationwide, but said they would press on with daily protests.

"Today's rallies end with evening and night prayers (at about 1800 GMT), and will be followed by funeral prayers," Anti-Coup Alliance spokesman Gehad El-Haddad said.

"There will be daily anti-coup rallies," he told AFP.
