The Free Egyptian Party is organizing a march after Friday’s prayer from Kasr Al Nil bridge to Abdel Moneim Riyad’s statue in Tahrir square where it will put flowers at the base of the statue in a beautiful move.

There is a Friday prayer held today at the tomb of the Unknown solider in Nasr City which is aired on both National TV and Al Jazeera Mubshar Misr.

Tens of Egyptians have gathered in front of the tomb of Unknown solider already and there is a stage installed there but unfortunately it seems to be more of a Pro-SCAF event than a Martyr Day event !!
