Nationwide clashes broke out on Friday between loyalists of deposed president Mohamed Morsi, local residents and security forces, leaving three dead.

According to a statement issued by the interior ministry, the slain were killed in Cairo, Upper Egypt’s Menya and Damietta in the Nile Delta.

The violence took place less than 48 hours after the cabinet declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group.

An official source from the health ministry told Al-Ahram Arabic news website that at least 12 were injured in clashes in Cairo, Ismailia, Fayoum and Menya. Most of the injuries resulted from the use of birdshot.

The deputy head of Menya’s security directorate was injured during the clashes, the interior ministry said.

A member of the anti-Morsi Tamarod group, Raed Abdeen, was injured in Fayoum and accused a member of the Muslim Brotherhood of shooting at him, added the ministry.

A total of 265 Muslim Brotherhood members were arrested, while three police vehicles were torched by pro-Morsi protesters across the country. The ministry had earlier announced the arrests included around 28 women.

Earlier on Friday afternoon, Al-Azhar students hurled rocks at police who were deployed outside their hostel gates to prevent them protesting on the streets outside.

The security forces fired teargas to disperse the protesters.

The students were protesting outside their hostels in solidarity with their colleague who was killed on Thursday.

Mohamed Abdel-Latif, a first year agriculture student, died in clashes between pro-Morsi Al-Azhar students and local residents in Nasr City.

Abdel-Latif was the second Al-Azhar student to be killed during clashes in the past three months.

In Cairo's Zeitoun, security forces prevented protesters from marching to the Qoba presidential palace. While in Upper Egypt’s Luxor a pro-Morsi protest was dispersed by security forces using teargas.

Protesters blocked a road in Giza's Haram before they were dispersed with tear gas.

The interior ministry said four soldiers were hurt in fierce clashes with demonstrators in Giza.

The demonstrations by Muslim Brotherhood supporters and loyalists in Alexandria, Sohag, Fayoum, Bani Souef, Damietta, Behaira and Port Said and other areas came in response to calls by the Brotherhood-led National Alliance to Support Legitimacy.

On Wednesday, the interim government officially designated the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organisation.

On Thursday, an interior ministry spokesperson announced a five-year penalty for participating in a protest organised by the Islamist group.

A no win road for the Muslim brotherood terrorists is chocking them out of existence
Violent demonstrations are exposing their members where they are being led to jails where they belong. Using explosives to kill Egyptians is increasing the revulsion of Egypts vast majority of civilised Egyptians against these thugs and their supporters. The brotherhoods millitant wing in Sinai is getting exterminated. The rope is tightening on these hoodlums every time they make a move. Thank you Gen. Sisi.

NOT STUDENTS!! they are TERRORISTS!!
These so called "students" are not students. If they are students than the only thing they have learned is violence, bloodshed & terrorism from the mb & their radical supporters. These protests have nothing at all to do with school & are not even related to schooling. Laws are made to keep a civilized society protected & safe. All the mb supporters & so called students are doing is showing the world just how barbaric & uncivilized they are. If you cannot behave like a decent law abiding citizen & obey the laws then you belong in PRISON NOT OUT AMONG THE REST OF THE HUMAN RACE!! They know the laws, like them or not they are the law & they are meant for EVERYONE!! The mb & radicals want to blame everyone else for causing the hatred & anger they recieve from people..WELL GUESS WHAT, YOU CAUSED THE HATRED & THE ANGER AGAINST YOU WITH YOUR OWN BEHAVIOR & ACTIONS & IN THE PROCESS YOU ARE CAUSING HATRED OF ISLAM WORLD WIDE, YOUR ACTIONS ARE DESTROYING A ONCE BEAUTIFUL & RESPECTED RELIGION!! YOU, THE MB & YOUR SUPPORTERS & RADICALS ARE DESTROYING IT, NOT ANYONE ELSE, YOU YOURSELVES ARE TO BLAME!! Did you really think the people of Egypt were going to keep tolerating your violent destructive behavior against the country? If you did you have no brains or just do not know how to use them.. Do you honestly think you can just keep going around disrupting & destroying everyone elses lives in the country with your protests, your bombings, your violence & your terroristic fear tactics..THE PEOPLE WILL & ARE FIGHTING BACK & YOU WILL LOSE!! Protests world wide are government regulated & in most civilized societies those laws are obeyed out of respect for the law & other citizens. These so called students have shown NO RESPECT FOR ANYTHING OR ANYONE..they deserve what they get & in my opinion & that is NO MERCY, NO LENIENCY!!

Criminal junta-even Israel doesn't do that
Israel had declared Fatah, Hamas, PFLP and other Palestinian groups "terrorist organizations" But Israel is negotiating with them now. The Ikhwan will get stronbger and stronger and the Sisi gang will be consigned to the dustbin of history.

Repent all you Brothers of Anarchy while you can
By the mercy of God Paradise has eight doors; one of those is the door of repentance, child. All the others are sometimes open, sometimes shut, but the door of repentance is never closed. Come seize the opportunity: the door is open; carry your baggage there at once." (Rumi)

The Profit ( pbuh) Said
The Prophet (may Allah exalt his mention) said, "Whoever notices something which he dislikes done by his ruler, then he should be patient, for whoever becomes separate from the company of the Muslims even for a span and then dies, he will die as those who died in the Pre-lslamic period of Ignorance (as rebellious sinners). (Fateh-Al-Bari page 112, Vol. 16)

The truth is free
When someone criticises or disagrees with you, a small ant of hatred and antagonism is born in your heart. If you do not squash that ant at once, it might grow into a snake, or even a dragon. " (Rumi) "Mathnavi"

The Modern Pharoahs
Old Egyptian Pharoahs & Hitler will be ashamed after seeing the massacres one after another and crimes against humanity by the Modern Egyptian rulers. The Tyrants and its puppet media hide the crimes but in today’s modern age when world is a global village, their every crime is being seen by the whole world.They can fool only themselves but they cannot rule over Egypt at gunpoint like the old dictators did in the past. World has changed, they days are numbered. Yes those who harming and abusing the dignity of the Egyptian mothers, sisters and sons, will be vanished from the earth.
