Security break up fight between pro-Morsy and pro-Sisi students at Cairo University

Clashes erupted between pro-Muslim Brotherhood students and students who support Defense Minister Abdel Fattah al-Sisi at Cairo University on Tuesday.
Clashes began after the the pro-Brotherhood students chanted against the army and al-Sisi.
Campus security intervened to separate the two groups as they engaged in a fist fight and beat each other with belts. Security also closed the doors to the university’s administrative offices to prevent the students from breaking into them like they did on Monday.
Dozens of Brotherhood students had organised two marches at Cairo University on Tuesday to call for the release of their colleagues who were arrested recently and to express their rejection of “the rule of the military.” Some of the protesters wore masks.
Meanwhile, Al-Azhar University on Tuesday expelled three students from the Faculty of Islamic Studies after they insulted the Armed Forces and Al-Azhar Grand Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayyeb.
The university administration on Tuesday also referred the three girls to a disciplinary council after they insulted the Armed Forces and Al-Azhar Grand Sheikh and claimed they were assaulted by the Armed Forces. The university board decided to expel them as well.
