Security sources: Morsy did not obtain permission for Giza rally

Sources at the Giza Security Directorate said presidential candidate Mohamed Morsy did not obtain permission to hold his rally before the "Renaissance" statue in front of Cairo University, adding that it would have been allowed had he or anyone from the Freedom and Justice Party applied for it.

The source said the rally paralyzed traffic on Saturday, as the statue located in the heart of Giza makes a rally there an act of “madness,” as the source put it.
