Egyptian Student Dies During Protests at Campus


Egyptian officials say police moved in to disperse students who were protesting inside an Islamic university in Cairo, disrupting end of term of exams. One student was killed and a campus building was set on fire in the violence.

Aya Fathy, a student spokeswoman, disputed the officials claim. She says police first opened fire at the students who were on strike and protesting outside the Faculty of Commerce Saturday, killing Khaled el-Haddad, a student.

The officials confirmed el-Haddad was killed but blamed the students for the violence. They spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.

The al-Azhar students have been protesting for weeks against the ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi who hails from the Muslim Brotherhood — a group that authorities on Wednesday designated a terrorist organization.
