Supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi in the Rabaa al-Adawiya Square have welcomed the first day of Eid al-Fitr with the delivery of a baby boy.

A female protester gave birth to a baby boy, who was named Ahmed, in the early hours of Thursday ahead of the Eid prayers in the square.

Two pregnant protesters have also been moved to hospital.

Morsi supporters have been staging round-the-clock sit-ins in Rabaa Square in eastern Cairo and Giza's Nahda Square since the former president's July 3 ouster by the military following mass protests against him.

They demand the reinstatement of the ousted leader, the dissolved Shura Council (the upper house of Egypt's parliament) and the suspended constitution.

The government has described the two sit-ins as a "threat" to national security and mandated the interior minister to take "all necessary measures" to disperse them.
