Egypt: Brotherhood Supporters Clash With Security Forces

Cairo — Clashes broke out on Friday afternoon between groups of Muslim Brotherhood supporters and security forces in Cairo's Ain Shams and Matariya.

The National Coalition for Supporting Legitimacy has called on its supporters to rally on what it called a "Friday of Anger" in continuation of Thursday's protests.

Security forces fired teargas bombs at the demonstrators in Ain Shams to disperse them, a source at the Interior Ministry told Aswat Masriya.

There are reports of one death in the clashes, but they have not been confirmed.

Three people were killed in clashes that erupted yesterday between security forces and pro-Brotherhood demonstrators in Cairo and Giza.

Thursday July 3 marked the first anniversary of the ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi following mass protests against his ruling.
