CAIRO -- Security and hospital officials say seven people have been killed in clashes between supporters and opponents of Egypt's Islamist president in Cairo.

The officials say the seven were killed in three separate clashes, but had no further details.

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

Tuesday's clashes come one day before a military deadline warning President Mohammed Morsi and his opponents to work out their differences or it will intervene with its own political road map to resolve the crisis.
