Members of the 9 March Teachers Movement for the Independence of Universities were assaulted by chain-wielding thugs after they attempted to stage demonstrations at Cairo's Ain Shams University to protest the presence of security forces on campus.
Demonstrators were eventually joined by students affiliated with the 6 April protest movement and the Muslim Brotherhood opposition group.
Teachers eventually withdrew from the scene, while students maintained the protest for another hour.
University administrators, for their part, have promised to look into protesters' demands and resolve the issue of on-campus security services.
