CAIRO - Dozens of people were injured in clashes between two groups of protesters, for and against putting former president Hosni Mubarak on trial, Egypt's official news agency MENA reported on Saturday.

Mubarak, 83, was forced from office in February in a popular uprising driven by anger at high-level official corruption and widespread poverty. He is due to stand trial on Aug. 3 for the killing of protesters and abuse of power.

The agency said the clashes erupted after anti-Mubarak protesters arrived in an area where hundreds of Mubarak's supporters were staging a rally.
