One of the major protest marches by president Mohamed Morsi supporters has been cancelled, the Freedom and Justice Party announces on their official Twitter account.

The Roxy Square demonstration in Cairo's Heliopolis district near the presidential guard and palace was cancelled, citing security reasons.

Although social media and news channels reported that other marches were cancelled, the FJP Twitter account denied the rumours through Twitter.

Some of the Friday pro-Morsi protesters ended up in fierce clashes with both residents of the demonstration areas and with security forces.
