Twenty-three people have been injured in clashes between rival factions of Egypt's opposition Wafd party in the capital Cairo, police have said.
The violence erupted after deposed Wafd leader Nomaan Gomaa occupied the party headquarters and supporters of the new leaders tried to gain entry.
Eight people were reported to have been shot and 15 others injured, and the building was set on fire.
Mr Gomaa, 71, and six of his supporters were detained by police.
Al Wafd party is considered the main secular "liberal" party of Egypt. Look what's happening with them. If the secularists are doing this then we're definitely between the hammer of the Mubarak regime and the anvil of the Muslim Brotherhood.
