Egypt's interior ministry on Wednesday banned demonstrations and warned that protesters will be prosecuted, as activists called for a second day of anti-government rallies.

"No provocative moves, or protest gatherings, or marches or demonstrations will be allowed," the ministry said in a statement.

"Legal measures will be taken against anyone (in contravention), and they will be transferred to the prosecution," the statement continued.
