Clashes Erupt in Tahrir Square

Clashes have erupted in Cairo's Tahrir Square as supporters and opponents of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi tried to wrest control of the iconic square in rival rallies.

The health ministry said on Friday at least 12 people were wounded as protesters showered stones at each other in some of the worst violence over the country's new leader.

The clashes started after Brotherhood supporters tore down a podium belonging to a group that was chanting anti-Morsi slogans, witnesses said.
