Brotherhood students storm Cairo University legal affairs building

Muslim Brotherhood students at Cairo University on Monday broke the glass facade of the legal affairs building and stormed it.

Witnesses said that a Brotherhood student, who was accused of recent violent acts on campus, was being interrogated inside by a legal affairs investigator and clashed with him, prompting the investigator to beat him.

They said the student ran out of the building and called 20 of his friends, who smashed the glass facade, stormed the building and fired fireworks, all in the absence of the administrative security.
After storming the building, the students marched around campus to demand the release of their colleagues.
Meanwhile, a bomb squad defused an improvised explosive device found on Monday close to Al-Azhar University's main gate in Nasr City.
Security forces have stepped up their presence outside campus in anticipation of any violence.
