Egypt: Unrest kills student in Cairo, troops in Sinai

21st Nov 2013

Clashes at Cairo’s Al-Azhar University between police and supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi have left one student dead. The incident follows a bombing on the Sinai Peninsula that killed 11 soldiers.

Egypt’s state newspaper al-Ahram said early Thursday that a student had been shot dead at Cairo’s Al-Azhar University after police entered to control protestors. Five other students were arrested.

Supporters of Morsi have often protested at the university which lies close to the Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque, scene of a fatal crackdown by the military on August 14.

Bus targeted in Sinai

Earlier on Wednesday, 11 soldiers died when an explosives-laded car rammed the first of four buses traveling in convoy in the Sinai Peninsula region. Another 37 soldiers were wounded.

The soldiers were reportedly off-duty while taking a break.

The Sinai bombing between el-Arish and Rafah was the deadliest in the region bordering Gaza and Israel since an August 19 ambush on a Egyptian security convoy in Rafah that killed 25 policemen.

Egyptian army chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi said the attack only “increases our resolve.”

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the car bombing.

Militants have stepped up attacks on Egyptian security forces in the mountainous Sinai since the army ousted Morsi’s on July 3, amid massive protests against the turbulent one-year rule of Egypt’s first freely elected president.

Egypt is bitterly split between Morsi’s supporters and those who backed the military overthrow. Both sides have also been accused of betraying the goals of the 2011 ouster of long-time strongman Hosni Mubarak.
