Clashes in Cairo between Egyptian security forces and supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi have wounded at least 22 people, emergency services say.

Nineteen people were wounded in clashes in the central Ramses area near Tahrir Square and on the main bridges over the Nile, emergency services chief Mohammed Sultan said on Tuesday.

Another three people were wounded in clashes in adjacent Giza, Sultan told the state MENA news agency.

Four Egyptian police -- two officers and two conscripts -- where admitted to hospital after the scuffles in Cairo on Monday night, MENA quoted an interior ministry source it did not identify as saying.

The report did not specify whether the four police were among the 22 wounded treated by the emergency services.

Morsi's supporters have been holding daily protests since the army ousted him on July 3.
