This year’s holiday was overshadowed by the deep divisions in Egypt, with the interim government planning to celebrate the festival with outdoor prayers in town center squares and Morsi’s supporters marking the holiday with their own protest gatherings, including the two major sit-in by the Islamists in Cairo.
