CAIRO: Muslim Brotherhood supporters continued their Friday demonstrations in different areas of Egypt.

Demonstrations today were mainly focused in Cairo and Giza, and participants called for boycotting the presidential elections slated to be held in 10 days.

The demonstrators chanted against the military and police in addition to waving the four-fingered symbol commemorating the deadly dispersal of the MB sit-ins at Rabaa al-Adaweya and Nahda Square in August.

Demonstrations occurred in Matareya, Helwan, Nasr City, Cairo University and 6 October City in Giza, Youm7 reported.

The demonstrations resulted in clashes between demonstrators and security forces. At Al-Azhar University in Nasr City, student protesters shot fireworks at security forces, who responded by using tear gas. Tear gas was also used to disperse protesters in Matareya and at Cairo University.

According to a security source quoted by Youm7, seven students possessing Molotov cocktails were arrested during the clashes at Al-Azhar. Youm7 also reported the situation had died down and returned to normal.
