Cairo: At least one person was killed and three were injured Friday in Kafr El-Sheikh province in Egypt during clashes between security forces and protesters supporting ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, health ministry said in a statement.

"One was killed and three were injured in Kafr El-Sheikh province during the gatherings in a marketplace at the city of Baltim," Xinhua quoted health ministry as saying in a statement, noting the three injured were sent to the city`s central hospital.

A dozen of pro-Morsi protesters were arrested during Friday`s anti-government marches in Cairo, Fayoum and Alexandria after the police confronted them for shouting slogans against the police and the military-oriented leadership.

Since Morsi`s removal by the military in July, 2013 and the following crackdown on his loyalists that left about 1,000 killed and thousands more arrested, supporters of the ousted president have been holding weekly protests denouncing his removal as "a coup".
