Large groups of demonstrators took to the streets Friday in Cairo in support of Egypt's overthrown Islamist government. 

Supporters of deposed president Mohamed Morsi marched to the building where it's believed  Morsi is being held, and there are reports of gunfire and violent skirmishes between them and the country's military.

Amira Ahmed is the deputy editor of the online news site MadaMasr. She joins the show from Cairo.
