CAIRO: Al-Azhar University may allow police forces inside the campus in case of violent incidents, said the spokesperson for the university Ahmed Ziraa.

In a phone call with el-Haya el-An TV Program, Ziraa said, despite this “necessary action” in response to damaging acts witnessed lately, the university’s administration persists on the continuation of study at the university.

Twenty-five students were officially expelled by the president of Al-Azhar University Osama el-Abd, who said they had been involved in riots inside the campus in a Monday release.

A source at the university told Youm7 that surveillance cameras at the university recorded the riots and spotted the involved students who were then identified and expelled by the administration of the university.

On Monday security forces arrested 10 Al-Azhar University students, allegedly affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, who are accused of setting fire to three vehicles during campus demonstrations.
