Police arrest 29 "rioting" students in four universities

Egypt's Interior Minister announced on Sunday that it dispersed gatherings of students "belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood" who attacked administrative security and public facilities inside four university campuses, Aswat Masriya reports.

"The police intervened and arrested 29 rioters," said the Interior Ministry in a statement published on its Facebook page, adding that "those who participated in acts of vandalism were determined through surveillance cameras." 
The small demonstrations were inside Azhar, Mansoura and Minya Universities, according to the Interior Ministry, in addition to Cairo University's Faculty of Dentistry campus.

In Minya, tens of students along with the "Students Against Coup" movement marched from inside campus to the university gates and blocked the Misr-Aswan Agricultural road.

Clashes broke out between students "supporting the Muslim Brotherhood" and administrative security in the University of Tanta as well.

Meanwhile, in Mounifiya University, dozen of students staged a demonstration on campus to demand the release of their detained colleagues.
