Clashes broke out between supporters and opponents of ousted president Mohamed Morsi in the Cairo neighborhood of Shubra on Friday, witnesses said.

The clashes erupted early in the afternoon, the witnesses said. Live footage on satellite station ONTV showed crowds throwing rocks at each other in the neighborhood.

Some clashes were also reported in the port cities of Damietta and Alexandria.

At least 24 people have been injured as clashes erupt between opponents and supporters of Egypt’s ousted President Mohamed Morsi.

The clashes erupted after Egypt’s army chief General Abdel-Fatal al-Sisi called for a show of support for the military.

He urged Egyptians to give the military a mandate to confront Morsi supporters.
