Clashes broke out on Friday afternoon between supporters and opponents of the Muslim Brotherhood in Alexandria's Victor Emmanuel Square as both parties exchanged stones.
Anti-brotherhood demonstrators marched from al-Qaed Ibrahim Mosque to the Northern military area in the city to denounce the rule of the brotherhood and urge the army to intervene and run the country.
As the demonstrators arrived in Victor Emmanuel Square, they were met by Muslim Brotherhood supporters hurling stones and empty bottles at them in an attempt to disperse them, an Aswat Masriya eyewitness reported.
A street war erupted in Somouha and Victor Emmanuel Square metres away from Alexandria's security directory.
Security forces did not intervene to break up the clashes but cordoned off the area around the directory's headquarters.
