UK Egyptians mark 2-year anniversary of Cairo killings
LONDON (AA): Egyptians in the U.K. are commemorating their compatriots killed in 2013 violence in Cairo.

Campaigners in London joined ‘Rabia London’ from different cities in the U.K., protesting the killings by driving slowly through the capital’s streets, reported an Anadolu Agency correspondent.

The group of dozens of cars and minibuses gathered in the city’s northeastern Cricklewood area. Many vehicles were furnished with British, Egyptian and Rabia flags plus flags depicting Egypt’s first democratically elected president – ousted in 2013 – Mohamed Morsi.

The event was held to commemorate over 1,000 people who died in violence in Cairo’s Rabaa al-Adawiya and Nahda squares in Aug. 2013.

Saturday’s convoy passed through central London, including Trafalgar Square, Marble Arch and Hyde Park.

One Muslim Brotherhood member on the protest, Mohamed Soudan, spoke to Anadolu Agency:

“Pro-coup people in Egypt killed thousands of innocent people in 10 hours in Rabaa al-Adawiya Square two years ago. Today we want to give the message to the international community that the killed people have not been forgotten.”

On Aug. 14, 2013, Egyptian security forces opened fire on two protest camps in Cairo, killing at least 1,150 people, according to Human Rights Watch.

The camps were in support of Morsi, who had been ousted in a military coup weeks earlier.
