Dozens of Muslim Brotherhood supporters hurled stones at police forces and attempted to cut off Mostafa al-Nahhas Street in Cairo's Nasr City on Friday.

Television footage showed police forces dispersing the demonstrators who torched car tires in the middle of the street in an attempt to halt traffic.

The National Coalition for Supporting Legitimacy has called for new protests under the title of "Our Constitution is 2012th" in order to urge people to boycott the upcoming constitutional referendum.
