Egypt crisis: Crossroads becomes 'Islamic Republic'

Supporters of Mohammed Morsi are camping out at a major crossroads in Cairo in protest at his overthrow by the army.

Makeshift tents have been set up in the street and in some cases entire families are living in the area.

Jim Muir in Cairo says the area has become a kind of "Islamic Republic" with those protesting insisting they will not move until the president is reinstated.
