Another round of violent clashes erupted in Cairo following Friday prayers, Egyptian state news agency MENA reported.

Security forces fired teargas at supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi who had taken to the streets near Tahrir Square.

Supporters of Morsi, the former Islamist president ousted by the military on July 3 following mass protests against his year-long rule, have consistently held protests since his removal from office.

In eastern Cairo, MENA reported that state security successfully blocked attempts by pro-Morsi protesters to march on the Defense Ministry headquarters.
