CAIRO - Protesters demanding the departure of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi clashed with police outside his palace on Monday on the second anniversary of the overthrow of veteran autocrat Hosni Mubarak.

Dozens of youths threw rocks at the Ettihadiya palace after a peaceful march by thousands of demonstrators who accused Morsi's conservative Muslim Brotherhood of hijacking Egypt's democratic revolution and seeking to monopolize power.Police responded by firing water cannon and teargas from the walls of the presidential compound, which have been raised in some places and shielded by barbed wire after petrol bombs set fire to a building in the grounds last week.



Riot police later emerged to chase the protesters away from the palace and into side-streets.

The clashes, which appeared smaller and less violent than previous bouts of anti-Morsi unrest, were broadcast live on some television channels.
