Dozens of Al-Azhar University students affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood held marches in campus dormitories Tuesday. They clashed with security forces stationed outside the dormitories who prevented them from leaving campus and disrupting traffic.
 
Hundreds of students marched through campus, chanting slogans against the Interior Ministry in protest of the alleged death of two students in Monday's clashes at Al-Azhar University, despite the Health Ministry's announcement that no deaths occurred.
 
Ten students were arrested in the clashes with security forces on Monday and a private bus was torched by demonstrators.
 
Students at the university have stepped up protests since a fellow student was killed on campus in clashes by security forces 21 November. The victim was a sixth year medical student named Abdel Ghany Mohamed Hamouda. Students have vowed to continue protesting until the perpetrator of Hamouda's death is brought to justice.
