Egypt: Thirteen Dead In Pro-Morsi Protests
At least 13 people have been killed in Egypt after Mohamed Morsi supporters clashed with police and opponents.
Violence broke out after thousands of people loyal to the deposed president demonstrated ahead of a new hearing in Morsi's trial, to be held on Wednesday.
Five people were killed in Cairo, said a health ministry statement, and the rest died in other cities including Alexandria, Ismailiya and Fayoum.
More than 120 people were arrested for carrying weapons and at least 57 were wounded nationwide as police used tear gas and birdshot to break up the demonstrations.
Protesters in Cairo threw rocks, petrol bombs and fireworks at police during street battles.
The capital's main squares, the site of violent clashes in the past, had been sealed off in advance by barbed wire and military vehicles.
Mohamed Morsi, an Islamist who came to power in democratic elections, was removed by a military coup in July 2013.
He now faces charges of inciting the killing of protesters when he was in power and is also accused over a jailbreak during the 2011 uprising that ousted former president Hosni Mubarak.
His Muslim Brotherhood movement was declared a terrorist organisation in December after Egypt's current rulers blamed it for a car bomb that killed 15 people.
It is now illegal to belong to the group or finance it.
The crackdown has increased tensions in a country suffering the worst internal strife of its modern history.
More than 1,000 Morsi supporters are estimated to have been killed in fighting since he was overthrown and thousands have been jailed.
Around 350 police and security officials have also died in attacks.
Tensions are also high ahead of a referendum on a new constitution later this month which would give the military more power and ban political parties based around religion.
