CAIRO (FOX) - An Egyptian teenager has been killed in fighting between supporters of the ousted Islamist president and security forces in Cairo.

On Friday, the 15-year-old boy was killed by birdshot pellets during a demonstration in the city's Zeitoun district.

There's no word on whether the victim was a protester or just passing by.

One other person also died during two days of violent protests on the anniversary of Mohammad Morsi's removal from office.

Muslim Brotherhood supporters marched chanting in Arabic, "The legitimacy will be back."

Muslim Brotherhood protesters also chanted in Arabic, "Those who took the streets on the 30th of June created this bad era of Egypt's history."

One banner in Arabic read, "Sissi (president) the beggar and killer of our brothers, we want to tell you that we are willing to pay with our lives to protect the honor of our daughters."

Some protesters carried pictures of ousted president Morsi.
