Egypt protests: New law condemned as 'repressive'

Human rights groups in Egypt have condemned a new law restricting public protests which has been signed by the interim President Adly Mansour.

The law bans protests without prior police notification.

Many believe the new legislation is aimed mainly at supporters of the now-banned Muslim Brotherhood and the ousted president, Mohammed Morsi.
