CAIRO – Supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi staged limited protests early Friday against Egypt's deteriorating economic conditions.

Pro-democracy supporters demonstrated in the Giza province, west of Cairo, and the central Minya province against what they describe as the country's worsening living conditions.

Supporters of the deposed leader also rallied in the coastal city of Alexandria and the canal city of Suez to demand the release of detained protesters.

Pro-democracy supporters organized human chains in the canal city of Ismailia and Sharqiya in the Nile Delta against power outages and deteriorating economic conditions.

Friday's rallies are part of week-long demonstrations called by the National Alliance for the Defense of Legitimacy, Morsi's main support bloc.

Egypt has been dogged by instability since the army unseated Morsi, the country's first freely elected leader, last July following massive protests against his presidency.

Pro-democracy protesters have staged almost daily rallies ever since to demand his reinstatement.
