Pro-Morsy supporters burn police car in Haram

A group of pro-Morsy supporters set fire to a police car using Molotov cocktails in the Haram area of Giza on Friday as protesters marched nearby.
A police officer and two recruits were inside the vehicle when it caught on fire. They ran out and took refuge nearby as the angry protestors continued marching.
Mahmoud Farouq, chief of Giza's investigative unit, said the fire was extinguished and the vehicle was towed away. He added that investigators are tracking down the attackers.
On the other end of Cairo, police fired tear gas in order to disperse demonstrators in Roxy square in Heliopolis.
Protestors fled to side streets, where they clashed with area residents.
Police also closed the streets leading to Ettehadeya Presidential Palace with iron barriers and barbed wire in order to prevent pro-Morsy marches for reaching the area.
