Egypt: Police Teargas Student Protests in Cairo and Alexandria

Egyptian authorities fired teargas to disperse pro-Muslim Brotherhood protesters in Cairo and Alexandria on Wednesday.

Hundreds of pro-Brotherhood students gathered in Cairo and Alexandria on Wednesday to denounce the army and show support for President Mohamed Mursi who was overthrown by the army last year.
 
The National Alliance to Support Legitimacy had called for demonstrations on Wednesday to mark a referendum conducted following the 2011 uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak.
 
Students were gathered near Cairo University and the Azhar campus in Nasr City earlier when they clashed with police forces.
 
Similarly, students gathered earlier in front of Alexandria University.
