Clashes erupted in Cairo University on Wednesday evening when hundreds of students from the universities of Cairo and Al-Azhar participated in a rally organised by Students Against the Coup (SAC).
The protest reached the Faculty of Applied Arts, which is near the Giza Security Directorate, according to SAC female coordinator at Cairo University known as Maria.
Several student sources reported that security forces used tear gas and birdshot to drive protesters back inside Cairo University.
The Anti Coup Alliance called on the students in a statement on Monday to lead massive protests on Wednesday and head to “putschist” courts and embassies. The alliance also called for protests heading to Tahrir, Nahda, and Rabaa squares.
