CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian security officials say that one person was killed in street fighting between supporters and opponents of Egypt's Islamist president, bringing to at least five who had died in violence in recent days.

Clashes have broken out repeatedly between the two sides that past three days ahead of massive protests the opposition plans for Sunday, aimed at forcing the removal of President Mohammed Morsi.

Security officials say the latest death came in clashes Friday in the Nile Delta city of Mansoura, where two other people were killed in previous days. They say two have also died in the Delta province of Sharqiya.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the press.
