Police Intervene To End Clashes In Alexandria

Security forces intervened to end clashes between supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi and residents of Alexandria’s Sidi Beshr area, Al-Ahram’s Arabic news website reported.

The district is the site of weekly battles between pro-Morsi supporters and their opponents. Al-Ahram reported that police fired teargas to separate the clashing parties.

The pro-Morsi National Coalition in Support of Legitimacy anounced a week of protests on Friday to demand Morsi’s reinstatement and condemn the military, who removed him from power amid mass protests against his rule.

No injuries or deaths have been reported so far.
