Protesters clashed with police across Egypt on Friday on the second anniversary of the revolt that toppled Hosni Mubarak, taking to the streets against the elected Islamist president who they accuse of betraying the revolution.
At least 91 civilians and 42 security personnel were hurt in violence across the country, officials said. Street battles erupted in Cairo, Alexandria, Suez and Port Said, where the Muslim Brotherhood's political party offices were torched.
Thousands of opponents of President Mohamed Mursi and his Muslim Brotherhood allies massed in Cairo's Tahrir Square — the cradle of the uprising against Mubarak — to revive the demands of a revolution they say has been hijacked by the Islamists.
The anniversary showcased the divide between the Islamists and their secular foes that hinders Morsi's efforts to revive an economy in crisis.
