Hundreds of students affiliated to political movements in the universities of Cairo, Helwan and Ain Shams staged protests on Saturday in front of the High Court demanding release of detained colleagues and Faculty members during recent events.
Meanwhile, several passers-by staged another pro-military protest and chanted slogans supporting the armed forces.
Verbal wrangles erupted among the student protests and some passers-by as the students shouted anti-military slogans, with police intervening to separate them.
