Egyptian security sources say police fired tear gas and arrested more than 20 people to break up an open-air prayer meeting of the banned Muslim Brotherhood.
The clashes erupted when several hundred people gathered Saturday in the Nile Delta village of El-Salhiya for prayers to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
Witnesses say police intervened to prevent the service from behind held outside, where Muslims normally pray during Eid al-Fitr.
Brotherhood members reacted by throwing stones at security forces.
Egypt's government has detained many Brotherhood members in recent months as part of a crackdown on the group.
