Egyptian students clash as Mursi turmoil spreads to campuses
CAIRO (REUTERS) - Rival groups of students, some armed with guns and Molotov cocktails, clashed across Egypt on Sunday, state media and security sources said, as violence triggered by the overthrow of president Mohamed Mursi spread to universities.
At least 29 people were wounded in fighting between groups for and against the ousted Islamist leader at at least three campuses, said the reports.
Egypt has been gripped by turmoil since the army ousted Mr Mursi on July 3 after mass protests against his rule, prompting his Muslim Brotherhood to take to the streets.
A security crackdown has severely restricted the group's activities and pro-Mursi students have started rallying on campuses, traditional hotbeds of Islamist and political activity.
