Supporters of Egypt’s ousted president Mohamed Morsi have staged fresh protest rallies across the North African country.

Large crowds of pro-Morsi demonstrators gathered in the cities of Cairo, Alexandria, Damietta, and Suez on Friday afternoon.

The rallies were called by Egypt’s largest Islamic movement Muslim Brotherhood as well as by the country’s largest anti-government group, Pro-Legitimacy Alliance.

The military-backed interim government has been stepping up security to prepare for Friday’s planned demonstrations by sealing off major squares and streets and deploying tanks and troops.

However, some incidents of violent clashes between protesters and security forces have been reported in Cairo and its adjacent areas. Latest reports say several people were also injured in fierce clashes between Morsi-supporters and police forces in the Nile Delta city of Zagazig.

Morsi’s supporters have been holding weekly rallies against the army-backed government for its deadly crackdown on Brotherhood supporters that has led to hundreds of deaths and detentions.
