CAIRO - At least 61 people have been injured in skirmishes in central Cairo that extended into Tuesday after police and protesters clashed during the anniversary of lethal street violence between activists and security forces.

Activists called the protest on Monday to put pressure on President Mohamed Morsi to punish those responsible for killings and abuses during the rule of the generals who assumed power after Hosni Mubarak was toppled by an uprising in February 2011.

The skirmishes erupted at the scene of clashes last year in which 42 people were killed during protests against the military council that ran the country before Morsi was elected in June.
