Students movement claims responsibility for burning police station

Students Against the Coup, a pro-Muslim Brotherhood movement formed following the ouster of President Mohamed Morsy in July, claimed on its official Facebook page responsibility for burning a police station in Nasr City on Sunday morning.

"The Tenth District's police station in Nasr City has been set on fire a while ago by Students Against the Coup, as the police attempted to assault students," read the statement published on the movement's Facebook page.
"The students have repeatedly warned of such assaults and said they would reclaim the rights of martyrs," said the statement.
Unidentified assailants threw Molotov cocktails at the Al-Sewesry Police Station Sunday morning in Nasr City setting it on fire. There were no reported casualties from the attack.
Civil protection forces headed to the area immediately and controlled the fire.
The prosecutors have been notified to investigate the incident.
