    (NECN) - Massive amounts of demonstrations are expected Sunday in Egypt against Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi.

    A former classmate, Will Stabler, said he was stunned to hear the news. "It's just so sad that he was off doing something so admirable... and something like that happens to him," Stabler said.
