CAIRO — Several thousand supporters of Egypt's ousted president rallied Friday as security forces deployed extra police officers and soldiers for the first weekend since a curfew across much of the country ended.

Clashes between supporters of toppled leader Mohamed Morsy and residents in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria killed a 16-year-old boy, the Interior Ministry said in a statement. It said Ihab Selim suffered a gunshot wound to the chest in the fighting and it was unclear who fired the shot.

The statement said police arrested seven Morsy supporters over the clashes.

Morsy supporters also protested at the presidential palace in Cairo. Protesters shot off fireworks and chanted slogans against the military. At one point, the crowd shouted: “This time is for real, we are not going to leave it for anybody.”

“We are protesting every day and our demands are the same,” protester Sayed Mohammed said.
