Egyptian students clash with riot police

In Egypt, there have been fresh clashes between riot police and students opposed to the military backed government.

The violence erupted as authorities tried to quell a demonstration outside the gates of Cairo’s Al-Azhar University.

For months it has been the scene of protests against what demonstrators call a “military coup” that deposed Islamist Mohamed Mursi as president last July after a year in office.
