Islamist Students Protest in Cairo and Attack Police (Video)

Islamist students protested at al-Azhar University in Cairo today. Then they pelted police with rocks and attacked a camera crew.

Al Arabiya reported:

Egyptian police fired tear gas at Islamist students who pelted them with rocks during an anti-army protest in Cairo’s al-Azhar university on Sunday.

The students, who are supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohammad Mursi, climbed on the campus fence and waved the four-fingered “Rabaa hand” salute, which represents protests at a previous site occupied by members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Al Arabiya’s crew members were attacked by the students while trying to cover the protest.

A group of Islamist students confiscated the team’s camera and some personal documents.
