Indonesians protest over Egypt massacre

Hundreds of Indonesian Muslims demonstrated in support of Egypt's anti-coup protestors Monday after days of clashes with security forces there that left hundreds people dead.

Egypt's army-installed authorities last week launched an offensive to clear protest camps filled with the civilian protestors.

The assault sparked days of deadly clashes between protesters and security forces in Cairo, Alexandria and elsewhere.

About 1,000 demonstrators gathered at the landmark Hotel Indonesia roundabout in the centre of Jakarta before marching to the Egyptian embassy, police said.

The protesters, who included many women, brandished banners reading "Stop Killing Egyptians" and gruesome photographs of victims of the violence.

"Save Egypt, their blood is our blood too. Stop killing our brothers and sisters!" a protester shouted through a microphone while the crowd responded by shouting "Allah is Great" in Arabic.

Indonesia is the country with the world's biggest Muslim population and events in the Middle East often spark protests.
