Cairo: Clashes broke out among the supporters and opponents of Egypt`s ousted president Mohammed Morsi on Friday after the state of emergency was extended by two months.

According to the officials, after Friday prayers in the coastal city of Alexandria, supporters of Muslim Brotherhood led out a massive protest. However, they were soon confronted by the opponents of Morsi.

The officials also said that they were expecting more terrorist attacks ever since a failed assassination attempt was carried out on Egypt`s Interior Minister a week back.

The unrest in Egypt began in early July when military coup toppled president Mohammed Morsi. This was followed by the arrest of many Muslim Brotherhood supporters.

The recent clashes have affected the mobility of Muslim Brotherhood supporters to protest in streets against the removal of Morsi.

Many Brotherhood members are still on run as arrest charges have been issued against them.

The officials also informed that al Qaeda has been inspiring the groups in northern Sinai.
