Supporters and opponents of Egyptian leader Mohammed Morsi pelted each other with rocks and fought with sticks outside the presidential palace in Cairo on Wednesday, as a new round of protests deepened the country's political crisis.
The opposition is demanding Morsi rescind decrees giving him near unrestricted powers and shelve a disputed draft constitution that the President's Islamist allies passed last week.
The clashes began when thousands of Islamist supporters of Morsi arrived gathered at the palace where about 300 protesters were staging a sit-in. The members Muslim Brotherhood chased the protesters away and tore down their tents. No casualties were immediately reported.
Mohamed ElBaradei, a leading opposition advocate of reform and democracy, accused the president's supporters of a "vicious and deliberate'' attack against peaceful demonstrators.
