Tens of thousands of Egyptians flocked to Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Friday, to prepare for the biggest day of protests in a week of violence in which at least 41 people were killed.

Those protesting the ruling military council’s decision to hold parliamentary elections next week without committing to transfer power to civilian authorities set up barricades at the entrance of Tahrir Square in order to block security forces out.

The main protest, dubbed the “March of the Million,” will end at Tahrir Square. Two more protests are expected to take place alongside it, one of those supporting the military council, and one of those supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Muslim Brotherhood march is due to begin at the Israeli embassy in Cairo toward Giza quarter. The brotherhood chose to start at the Israeli embassy in order to divert the attention from Cairo clashes to other matters, such as the Palestinians.
