A supporter of Egypt’s deposed President Mohamed Mursi and his Muslim Brotherhood died of a gunshot wound in clashes near central Cairo, medical sources said.

The clashes broke out on Friday as pro-Mursi protesters marched in the Manial neighborhood. Violence broke out in several other Egyptian cities as Brotherhood supporters marched in defiance of a security crackdown.

Military vehicles have opened fire on Muslim Brotherhood supporters in Cairo, it’s been reported. News agency Reuters said witnesses reported seeing live rounds being fired near Tahrir Sqaure.

Earlier hundreds of supporters of Egypt’s deposed President Mohamed Mursi clashed with their opponents in central Cairo. Police fired tear gas to disperse them. The police and army blocked off a separate entrance to the square to prevent a separate pro-Mursi march from approaching, security sources said.
