Clashes erupted in Cairo between opponents of deposed Egyptian President Mohamd Morsi and his supporters on Friday afternoon, AFP reported.

AFP cited footage from Egyptian ONTV as showing demonstrators hurling stones at each other in the capital city's neighborhood of Shubra.

A few hundred pro-army supporters gathered early Friday morning in Tahrir Square, center of two years of turmoil in Egypt, before a larger rally was slated to take place, though expected to peak after the evening prayer marking the end of the day's Ramadan fast.

The Egyptian army on Friday also said it was detaining Morsi over accusations of kidnapping, killing soldiers and other charges, according to the state news agency.

Reuters contributed to this report.
