CAIRO - Police fired tear gas on Friday to break up clashes between opponents and supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in the Egyptian coastal city of Alexandria, security sources said.

Egypt has been gripped by turmoil since Morsi's overthrow on July 3 after mass protests against his rule, prompting his Muslim Brotherhood to organize daily protests in the streets.
