CAIRO: Tensions between rival Egyptian political factions erupted into scuffles on Friday during a protest against a court ruling that acquitted officials from Hosni Mubarak’s era of ordering a camel charge against demonstrators in last year’s uprising.

While the activists were united in anger at the court ruling, supporters and opponents of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi threw stones and bottles at each other, showing feelings still run high between rival groups trying to shape the new Egypt after decades of autocracy.
