People raise their hands and banners to show a hand gesture of an open palm with four raised fingers during a protest in Beni Sueif, south of Cairo, Egypt, Friday, Aug. 30, 2013. The gesture became a symbol for the main sit-in of supporters of Egypt's ousted President Mohammed Morsi near the Rabaah al-Adawiya mosque in Cairo. The sit-in was violently disbanded. Several thousand people heeded calls by the Muslim Brotherhood and protested Friday throughout Cairo and other cities against a coup and deadly crackdown as the police and army blocked key roads and beefed up security. The Arbaic on the banners reads, "Stand firmly (top) and Rabaah, part of the mosque's name." (AP Photo/Sabry Khaled, El-Shorouk) EGYPT OUT
