Morsi supporters, opponents clash near Cairo's Tahrir

Running clashes erupted on Friday between supporters and opponents of Egypt's ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi near Cairo's Tahrir Square, AFP correspondents said.

The sound of gunfire could be heard as the two sides hurled rocks at each other on the October 6 bridge leading into Tahrir. Below the bridge, ambulances were ferrying the injured out of the area.
