2. UPDATE: An Army recruit who triggered a military and law enforcement alert is not considered an immediate threat by the FBI – even though the agency said he told friends he planned a “Ft. Hood-inspired jihad” against fellow soldiers” and warned it was “imminent.”
FoxNews.com reported Monday that the FBI was searching for a recent Army recruit known as “Booker, also known as Mohammad Abdullah Hassan” after obtaining an alert based on FBI intelligence and provided by the agency’s Kansas City division. The alert, which the FBI sent to the U.S. Marine Corps, local police departments and other law enforcement agencies, was titled “Planned Ft. Hood-inspired Jihad against US Soldiers by Army Recruit” and said Hassan had warned his “jihad was imminent.”
There have been violent clashes in Cairo and three other Egyptian cities between police and university students loyal to the ousted Islamist president.
In the capital pitched battles went on for hours as the students from Ein Shams university pelted police with rocks. The security forces used tear gas to try to disperse the protesters.
Elsewhere, 200 kilometres south of Cairo at Assiut, some 45 people including 15 schoolgirls were injured in the violence.
