Police have fired teargas to prevent pro-Muslim Brotherhood protesters leaving the Cairo University campus in Giza.

The students were protesting a recent police crackdown on student demonstrators, Al-Ahram’s Arabic news website reported.
Seven students were arrested by security forces deployed at the university gates.

Two students have died during clashes with police at campuses in Cairo so far this month – Mohamed Reda at Cairo University and Abdel-Ghany Mahmoud at Al-Azhar.

Fifty-eight people were injured during clashes on Monday at Al-Azhar University between pro-Brotherhood students and security forces.

Engineering students at Cairo University have been staging a sit-in to demand accountability for the death of Mohamed Reda, a fellow engineer.

Cairo University issued a statement blaming security forces for killing Reda, but the interior ministry has denied using birdshot, the weapon that killed him.
