Egypt's military will intervene to "separate" clashing supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi and his opponents on Friday near Cairo's Tahrir square, a military spokesman told AFP.

"We are not taking sides. Our mission is to secure the lives of protesters," said Colonel Ahmed Ali. "The military is going to intervene to separate the protesters."
