At least one person was killed on Friday during clashes between security forces and supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in Fayoum governorate southern the capital Cairo,Xinhua reported.

Pro-Morsi marches have been staged in various parts of the turmoil-stricken country including Cairo, Giza, Fayoum, Alexandria and others.

Meanwhile, the government arrested tens of Morsi's supporters, mostly from the Muslim Brotherhood group that has been declared by the interim government last December as "a terrorist organization. "

Since Morsi's ouster by the military last July, Islamists have been holding protests against the current interim leadership, especially after mid-August 2013 when security forces dispersed two major pro-Morsi sit-ins in Cairo and Giza, leaving about 1,000 people dead and thousands arrested.
