Cairo, Egypt - One person was killed and 14 injured during clashes between backers and opponents of ousted president Mohammed Morsi in Egypt, the Health Ministry said.
Thousands of Morsi's followers took to the streets in Cairo and the northern city of Alexandria to demonstrate against the country's interim rulers.
Several protesters tried to march to central Cairo's Tahrir Square, which was closed off by army and police forces since the morning.
State-run newspaper al-Ahram reported that violence broke out as the protesters arrived near the square.
A dpa correspondent saw at least two people carrying Kalashnikovs and others carrying sticks heading towards the protesters.
Security forces used tear gas to disperse the crowds.
Hundreds have been killed in Egypt since Morsi's overthrow, in clashes involving his supporters, opponents and security forces.
Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood and its Islamist allies have denounced the ouster of Egypt's first democratically elected president as a coup and vowed to continue protesting until he is reinstated.
Military and security troops were deployed in Cairo to prevent followers of the Muslim Brotherhood from reaching public squares where they reportedly planned to hold sit-ins.
A Muslim Brotherhood-led alliance has called on followers to march to Tahrir Square on Sunday, which marks Army Day.
The army's supporters also called for a massive rally in Tahrir Square on Sunday.
Earlier Friday, gunmen killed two army soldiers near the Suez Canal city of Ismailia, the state news agency reported.
Two other soldiers were wounded in the drive-by shooting, which targeted an army personnel carrier on a desert road linking Ismailia to Cairo.
Two suspects were arrested, said the agency.
Members of the security forces have been the target of numerous attacks since July, when the army deposed Morsi following massive street protests against his rule.
