CAIRO - Egyptian police fired tear gas on Friday to disperse supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood who the Interior Ministry said had blocked traffic near a television production complex outside the capital, Cairo.

A ministry statement gave no details on the size of the protest or whether anyone had been hurt or detained. Egypt was braced on Friday for a possible crackdown on two Cairo sit-ins by Muslim Brotherhood supporters of deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.
