Zee Media Bureau/Tarun Khanna
Cairo: In a way to prevent ousted President Mohamed Morsi’s supporters from protesting near Rabaa Square protest camp, Egypt forces on Sunday fired tear gas to disperse the protesters.
A massive crowd of nearly 500 students from Al-Azhar University was marching towards a protest camp which was cleared by Egyptian army two months ago.
The students were pelting stones on the forces in front of University gate.
On July 3, Morsi was ousted by Egypt Army chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. The protesters have inscribed `Sisi` as murderer on the walls of the university.
Hundreds were killed and around thousands were arrested when the Army smashed two pro-Morsi protest camps on August 14.
