CAIRO - One man was killed and 15 people were injured in an attack on a protest by hundreds of supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohamed Morsi near Cairo University early Tuesday morning, state-run news website said.

Al-Ahram Online said police fired tear gas to quell the violence and several cars in the area were smashed or set on fire.

Police sources said hundreds of Pro-Morsi supporters clashed with local residents, street sellers and others near Cairo University's main campus in Giza province, south of Cairo. They said gunshots were fired and stones were thrown during the incident.

One person was killed and around 20 were injured on Monday in clashes between supporters and opponents of Morsi in central Cairo. Around 100 were killed since the army's overthrow of Morsi, elected last year, on July 3 after mass protests.
