Egypt's ambulance authority head Ahmed El-Ansary announced on Friday that at least nine were injured after a tram in Cairo's Nasr City crashed into two cars. 

The accident occurred after supporters of deposed president Mohamed Morsi allegedly threw Molotov cocktails at a tram line near Al-Nozha street in Nasr City, setting a train carriage and a nearby kiosk on fire.

According to El-Ansary, the injured were transferred to the nearby Heliopolis and Manshyiet El-Bakri hospitals.

Pro-Morsi protesters took the streets on Friday to mark 100 days since a violent security dispersal of two Islamist protest camps left hundreds dead in August.

Thousands marched in a number of Cairo districts, as well as in Alexandria, the Upper Egypt city of Assiut, the Nile Delta cities of Kafr El-Dawwar and Damietta, and the Suez Canal city of Suez, reported Al-Ahram's Arabic website.

The protests, which turned into clashes in several places, left a 10-year-old dead in Suez, as well another killed in Minya and 15 injured nationwide, according to Middle East News Agency (MENA).

silly us
We didn't understand, they set the tram alight, yes, but it was only to show and celebrate how peaceful they are. It's a contest, the more they smash and vandalize, the more peaceful they show they are.... Silly us for not understanding them.

vandals
Vandals, this is all what they know to do. And we need to come into agreements with these frustrated vandals? No, we need to get rid of them.
