Egyptian student dies during protests at campus

Published: 12.28.13, 16:13 / Israel News

Riot police moved into Egypt's main Islamic university on Saturday, claiming that striking students were disrupting end-of-term exams. They fired tear gas and battled demonstrators in a melee that left one protester dead and an administration building torched, officials and students said.

 

Police say they entered eastern Cairo's Al-Azhar campus, the site of frequent clashes in recent weeks, and deployed around other Egyptian universities to prevent supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi from intimidating other students trying to take the tests. (AP)
