Egyptian security forces fired tear-gas and dispersed university students who had defied a law passed on Sunday that restricts demonstrations, the state news agency reported on Monday.
Students of Al-Azhar University and Assiut University in Assiut province, south of Cairo, staged a protest in defiance of the new law, chanting protest against the army and police.
Separately, in the first move to implement the law, the Interior Ministry approved requests for protests by lawyers and political activists in front of the lawyers’ syndicate in Cairo and the State Council in Giza, it said.
