ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Clashes erupted between Egyptian protesters and police where hundreds opposed to President Mohamed Mursi had rallied on Friday outside El-Quba, one of the presidential palaces in the northern suburbs of Cairo. The protesters, who numbered several hundred by early afternoon, clashed with police after sunset, some used Molotov cocktails and police fired tear gas to disperse the demonstrators. Recent protests have routinely turned violent, with government buildings, police stations and the presidential palace coming under fire from petrol bombs and rocks. Earlier, protesters had chanted down Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood, the party from which he descends, and called for his resignation. Around 60 people have been killed in Egypt since late January in unrest touched off by the anniversary of the uprising against Mubarak and exacerbated by a court ruling that sentenced 21 people to death over a football stadium disaster a year ago.
