CAIRO: Pro-Muslim Brotherhood students organized a protest on Tuesday in front of Cairo University’s main gates, Youm7 reported Tuesday.

The students chanted slogans against the police and army, while an ambulance was stationed in front of the Faculty of Law, in preparation for any clashes between the protesters and security forces.

This came after the students organized a march on campus calling on officials to release detained students so they can attend the exams.

The marches began at different points, including the mosques of the Faculty of Commerce and Dar Al-Uloom.

Security staff intensified their presence on the university gates to check students’ identification cards and inspect cars. Additionally, female security employees were stationed to inspect female students.

Military forces arrived in Nahda Square to support the police forces in securing the Giza Security Directorate during protests.

Meanwhile, Al-Azhar University witnessed a state of cautious calm among a limited presence of students and intensified security presence around the administration building and the Faculty of Agriculture, in efforts to avoid Monday’s violence, according to Youm7.
