Huge rallies by supporters and opponents of Egypt's ousted Islamist president continued into last night with five people killed in Alexandria.

Army supporters converged on Tahrir Square, just a few miles away.



The detained ex-leader has been formally accused of conspiring with the Palestinian militant group Hamas.
