Pro-Muslim Brotherhood students from Cairo’s al-Azhar University blocked streets in Cairo’s Nasr City district on Sunday during a demonstration calling for oustered president Mohamed Morsi be reinstated. Protests have been ongoing since a pro-Muslim Brotherhood student from the university died during clashes on November 21.
Students pelted stones and bottles at those opposed against them, leaving dozens injured. The protesters also lit a fire at the university’s dormitory gates, reportedly to lessen the effects of tear gas fired at the students earlier in the protest by police.
Meanwhile, Iran and Afghanistan just signed a formal alliance of sorts.
