Egypt crisis: Huge rival rallies as Morsi is accused

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

In what is seen as a trial of strength, supporters of Mohammed Morsi filled the streets around a mosque in Cairo to condemn his removal by the army.

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.
