The woman named her baby “Tamarod”, Arabic for rebellion”, after the popular opposition group, which is leading a nationwide campaign for Mursi’s removal and holding early presidential elections.

The movement confirmed on its website the report, saying that the woman gave birth to her child with assistance from medics at a field hospital near the square.

“May God bless with this newborn of the revolution who is a good sign that the regime will fall,” added the group on its website.

Tamarod said on Saturday it had collected more than 22 million signatures demanding Mursi resign, outnumbering the votes he secured in last June’s presidential election.
