Political violence in Egypt`s Nile Delta between supporters, opponents of ousted president leave dozens injured, Al-Ahram reports.
Clashes have erupted in Mansoura, the regional capital of Egypt`s Daqahliyah governorate, between opponents and supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, leaving dozens injured, Al-Ahram`s Arabic-language news website reported.
Security forces reportedly intervened with teargas to separate the rival groups.
Thousands of pro-Morsi demonstrators gathered outside the Mansoura University Stadium on Sunday, where a former MP for the Muslim Brotherhood`s Freedom and Justice Party told crowds that they would not move until Morsi was reinstated as president.
Meanwhile, thousands of anti-Morsi demonstrators gathered at Mansoura`s Thawra Square, where they chanted against violence and perceived US support for the ousted president and the Muslim Brotherhood.
In Tanta, the capital of Egypt`s Gharbiya governorate, meanwhile, clashes also erupted between rival camps. The number of injuries remains unclear.
The death toll from political violence nationwide has reached at least thirty-seven since Friday, with hundreds reportedly injured in clashes.
