Egypt's security forces disperse Islamist protests

Published: 12.13.13, 22:32 / Israel News

Egyptian security forces fired tear gas Friday to disperse hundreds of Islamist demonstrators marching across the country to demand the release of detained student protesters. One person was killed south of the capital and another in the canal city of Suez.


Since Islamist President Mohammed Morsi was ousted in a popularly-backed military coup in July, his supporters have been staging near-daily protests calling for his reinstatement. Their numbers dwindled under a heavy security crackdown, but university campuses have emerged at the forefront of the movement since classes started last September. (AP)
