An anti-coup supporter was killed on Friday during a rally staged by supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi in the coastal city of Alexandria.

Mohamed Abdullah, 18, was shot by a gun loaded with birdshots when security forces intervened to disperse the rally in western Alexandria, a source in the pro-democracy National Alliance for the Defense of Legitimacy told Anadolu Agency.

More than 11 protesters were also injured, according to the source.

Egyptian authorities have not yet confirmed the fatality.

Supporters of the ousted president staged fresh protests on Friday as part of a "third revolutionary wave" called by the National Alliance to call for a boycott of Egypt's presidential election late May.

Egypt has been dogged by instability since the army unseated Morsi, the country's first freely elected leader, last July following massive protests against his presidency.

Anti-coup protesters have staged almost daily rallies ever since to demand his reinstatement.
