A 23-year-old student was killed on Friday in clashes between security forces and alleged supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood in Sharqiya governorate, a security official said.

Tens of Brotherhood supporters organised a rally and chanted against state institutions, Sharqiya Security Director Atef Mahran told Aswat Masriya. Police forces dispersed the rally and arrested one of the protesters, Mahran added.

The student, who was a passer-by, was shot by anonymous assailants, according to Mahran.

The banned Muslim Brotherhood has called on its supporters to protest against the death sentence handed to ousted President Mohamed Mursi on Tuesday for accusations of escaping from the Wadi al-Natroun prison.

Also on Friday, security forces dispersed a protest by dozens of Muslim Brotherhood followers in Cairo’s Matariya district. The district – frequently a site of Brotherhood demonstrations – has witnessed many clashes and casualties between police, locals and protesters since Morsi’s ouster.

    The Brotherhood was threatening major protests today but this one in Sharqiya is the only reported one to materialize.

    What does him having being a student got to do with it? A terrorist is a terrorist plain and simple.

    • Gøril Onarheim

      The article say he was a “passer by”…so probably he didnt attend the demonstration. Wrong place at the wrong time.
