A security official says clashes between supporters of the country's ousted president and residents of Egypt's Mediterranean city of Alexandria have left one dead and dozens wounded.

The security official says residents of Manshiya neighborhood were angered by marchers who were chanting against the country's armed forces. It was not immediately clear what sparked the violence.

He said 46 people were wounded, including some by gunshot and birdshot, in the fighting that broke out before dawn Wednesday. He spoke anonymously as he was not authorized to talk to media.

Already more than 250 people have been killed in violence since the military ousted President Mohammed Morsi from power July 3. His supporters have staged daily protests since.
