One student was killed, several injured and at least 60 arrested on Saturday as students at the Cairo campus of Al-Azhar University battled with security forces. At least two buildings were set ablaze. The day was the first of end-of-term examinations at the university, the epicentre of recent anti-government demonstrations led by Islamist youth
The state-owned al-Ahram newspaper reported that security forces used teargas to disperse students who were stopping others taking their exams. The violence followed the deaths of at least five people during protests in several cities on Friday.
