Cairo - The wife of Egypt's ousted president Mohammed Morsi has addressed thousands of his supporters at a protest camp in Cairo, where she vowed: "He is coming back, God willing."

Naglaa Mahmoud made her first appearance on Thursday since the 3 July military coup, which followed mass rallies demanding her husband's removal from office. He's been held incommunicado since then.

Speaking on a makeshift stage, she delivered what she described as "good news," saying, "We are victorious" and Egypt "is Islamic."

The protest camp is the site of one of two sit-ins by Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood group and its allies. Protesters demand Morsi's reinstatement.

The interim government has said it will clear the sit-ins and that nearly two weeks of foreign diplomatic efforts to peacefully resolve the stand-off have failed.
