Protests against the Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi are spreading beyond Cairo. Pro- and anti- Muslim Brotherhood protesters clashed overnight in the Nile Delta city of Mahalla. 50 people were injured.
There is widespread opposition to Morsi’s plans for constitutional reform, which grant him a raft of unchecked powers.
In Alexandria, Egypt’s second city, protesters broke into the headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood.
They hurled papers and furniture into the street.
In the capital, protesters have gravitated towards Tahrir Square, the focus of the 2011 uprising that ousted former president Hosni Mubarak.
Nearby, several hundred young Egyptians clashed with police, throwing stones and having tear gas fired at them in response.
Anger at Morsi’s plans has energised the mainly liberal and secular opposition after months of division.
