    The Islamist's nationwide rally in support of their president ran into stiff opposition in Alexandria, Egypt's second city.

    Here thousands of pro and anti-president forces clashed with stone-throwing and brawling when they met.

    This week has belonged to the opposition, which has mobilised twice to protest at what they claim is the president's seizure of "dictatorial powers".
