Cairo - At least one person has been killed and 200 wounded in street clashes on Wednesday between supporters and opponents of Egypt's Islamist president in the city of Mansoura, security sources said, hours before Mohammed Morsi is to address the nation.

There was also clashes in the neighbouring Nile Delta city of Tanta, north of Cairo, though casualty figures from there were not immediately available.

Morsi is due to make a keynote speech in Cairo in a few hours to address calls for his resignation.

Major opposition rallies are planned for the weekend, which some fear could turn violent.
