At least 30 people have been killed in violence across Egypt, after Islamist President Mohamed Mursi was removed from power by the army.
In Cairo, three hours of street fighting between hundreds of supporters and opponents rocked the capital.
The military deployed troops and armoured vehicles.
The 6th of October bridge, close to Tahrir Square, was at the heart of the clashes.
Pro and anti Mursi demonstrators threw stones, fireworks and other objects at each other.
Three people were reported dead, around 200 others injured.
Into the night, anti-Mursi demonstrators remained in Tahrir Square
Mursi – Egypt’s first freely elected president – was toppled on Wednesday in what his supporters call a military coup.
His opponents say it was an intervention to impose the “people’s will.”
