(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Protesters set fire to car tyres near Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi's house in his hometown of Sharqiya on Friday (January 25) as violence flared across the country. Anti-Mursi demonstrators also threw stones at the Muslim Brotherhood's headquarters in the town, during the second anniversary of the revolt that toppled Hosni Mubarak, taking to the streets against the elected Islamist president who they accuse of betraying the revolution. At least 91 civilians and 42 security personnel were hurt in violence across the country, officials said. Street battles erupted in Cairo, Alexandria, Suez and Port Said, and Ismailia where the Muslim Brotherhood's political party offices were torched. Thousands of opponents of Mursi and his Muslim Brotherhood allies massed in Cairo's Tahrir Square - the cradle of the uprising against Mubarak - to revive the demands of a revolution they say has been hijacked by the Islamists. The January 25 anniversary has highlighted the divide between the Islamists and their secular foes that is hindering Mursi's efforts to revive an economy in crisis and reverse a plunge in Egypt's currency by enticing back investors and tourists.
