Violent clashes erupted Thursday between pro- and anti-Mubarak protesters, the official MENA news agency reported.

MENA quoted police and judicial officials as saying that about 200 supporters of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who protested in front of the parliament headquarters in central Cairo, clashed with some 300 anti-Mubarak protesters, adding they threw stones and water bottles at each other before police and soldiers intervened.

"We are not hired to do so. We love Mubarak and the stability we enjoyed under his regime, which are the real motives behind our protests," said one of the pro-Mubarak protestors.

The armed forces separated the crowds without causing any casualties.
