Flares are fired as Muslim Brotherhood and ousted President Muhammad Morsi supporters clash with security forces along Qasr Al Nil Bridge, which leads to Tahrir Square in Cairo, on July 22.Flares are fired as Muslim Brotherhood and ousted President Muhammad Morsi supporters clash with security forces along Qasr Al Nil Bridge, which leads to Tahrir Square in Cairo, on July 22.

Violence has continued in Egypt, with two supporters of Egypt's ousted President Muhammad Morsi reported to have been killed and others injured in Cairo.

The pro-Morsi Muslim Brotherhood said on its website that police in civilian clothes had opened fire on Morsi supporters during a march early on July 24.

There was no confirmation of the casualties from Egyptian health authorities.

In a separate incident, at least 17 people were reported injured when a bomb exploded outside a police station in a province north of Cairo, in Mansoura in the Nile Delta.

Egypt has been racked with sometimes deadly violence since Morsi was ousted by the military on July 3 following massive public protests against his government.

The Muslim Brotherhood has vowed to continue protests until Morsi is reinstated.
