Clashes erupted late Monday afternoon in the Cairo neighbourhood of Garden City along the Corniche and in front of the British and American Embassiesbetween pro- and anti-Morsi demonstrators. State-runAl-Ahram Online reported one person dead and 21 injured.
The violence began shortly after 4 o’clock as a peaceful pro-Morsi demonstration in front of the High Court marched to protest in front of the American Embassy. As the march passed Tahrir Square near Qasr El Nil Street, protestors from both sides began a volley of stones, Molotov cocktails and fireworks.
Members of the pro-Morsi rally said they had decided to march to the American Embassy to protest what they perceive as the United States’ meddling in Egyptian affairs.
