Cairo: Dozens of students at Kasr Al-Ainy School of Medicine at Cairo University organized a campus march Wednesday in support of detained students.

Marchers called on authorities to allow the detainees to take exams, and also chanted against the military, police and university administration.

They also set off fireworks and held signs reading “down with military rule,” Youm7 reported.

At the Faculty of Engineering, the students clashed with administrative security after trying to build tents to conduct a sit-in on the campus.

In related news, the General Prosecution Wednesday approved dozens of requests allowing detained students to apply for second-term exams.

The decision enables all students at all grades who are prisoners of pending investigations to apply for exams and establishes security measures to protect them.
