Pro-Morsy students begin fresh protests in Ain Shams, Al-Azhar universities

On Monday, hundreds of pro-Morsy students from Ain Shams University blocked al-Khalifa al-Maamoun street, bringing traffic to a complete stop.
Before heading out on the streets, the students staged a protest outside the university’s administrative office, demanding the release of colleagues who were detained over recent clashes with security forces.
“Down with the military rule,” some students chanted. “Bread, freedom, we’ll burn down the Interior Ministry.”
The military beefed up its presence near the Defense Ministry with three armored vehicles. Police used tear gas extensively, as well as bird shots, to disperse the students near the Defense Ministry. Protesters, however, fled through Zaafaran and al-Khalifa al-Maamoun street.
At Al-Azhar University, students shut down the gates at the Schools of Pharmacy and Agriculture to interrupt midterm examinations. Students had done the same on Sunday at the schools of translation and commerce.
Meanwhile, student demonstrations continued in several other universities across Egypt.
