Supporters and opponents of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi have staged rival rallies across the country ahead of a mass protest planned by the opposition for Sunday.
Several thousand Morsi supporters rallied outside the main mosque in Cairo’s Nasr district, two days before the anniversary of his inauguration.
Opponents assembled in several parts of Cairo, including Tahrir Square.
Fighting broke out between opposition marchers and Islamists in Alexandria.
At least nine people were injured in Alexandria, Egypt’s second city, when birdshot was fired in clashes outside a local office of the Muslim Brotherhood, which backs the president.
