A protester opposing Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood runs from tear gas during clashes with police in front of the Presidential Palace, as some protesters tried to break through one of the gates of the palace, in Cairo.

Egyptian police have fired water cannon at stone-throwing protesters outside the presidential palace as the opposition held rallies to mark the second anniversary of Hosni Mubarak's overthrow. The clashes broke out after several hundred protesters marched to the palace to protest against Egypt's new Islamist president, Mohamed Morsi. Al Jazeera's Sherine Tadros reports from Cairo.
