Clashes erupted Monday evening in Cairo's downtown between police forces and hundreds of deposed president Mohamed Morsi supporters, who have been demanding the reinstatement of the former elected president.
Eyewitnesses told Ahram Online that violence broke out after police forces fired teargas at pro-Morsi protesters to clear the Six of October Bridge above downtown's Ramsis street, both of which were both blocked by the demonstrations.
Morsi's supporters hurled stones at the police after the latter fired teargas canisters. Ahram Online's reporter says the police have also used birdshot, and that a number of downtown residents and opponents of the Brotherhood joined the police against the pro-Morsi supporters.
