Diplomatic moves to end the crisis in Egypt appear to be gathering momentum.

Al Jazeera sources say that the foreign ministers of Qatar and the United Arab Emirates are to join European Union and US envoys in a meeting with the jailed deputy leader of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Supporters of the ousted President Mohamed Morsi are out in force across the country for another night.

And despite calls from the interim government for the protesters to go home, more "anti-coup" marches are planned by the Muslim Brotherhood and its allies.
