Security forces fired tear gas at supporters of deposed president Mohamed Morsi on Friday after they attacked the United Arab Emirates embassy in Cairo's Heliopolis.

Protesters assaulted the embassy's guards, according to Al-Ahram's Arabic website.

The UAE, a staunch opponent of the Muslim Brotherhood – the group from which Morsi hails – has been among several Arab states backing the former president's ouster.

According to eyewitness accounts, protesters also threw Molotov cocktails at a tram line near Al-Nozha street in Nasr City, setting a carriage on fire. They also set fire to a nearby kiosk.

Police fired tear gas at pro-Morsi students at Al-Azhar University, located in Nasr City, to prevent them from protesting outside the campus grounds.

The students were marking 100 days since the violent August dispersal of two pro-Morsi protest camps at Rabaa Al-Adawiya mosque and Nahda Square.

According to Aswat Masriya news website, rocks and other objects were hurled between protesters, police and local bystanders in the vicinity of Al-Azhar University. 

Egypt's universities have witnessed regular protests by supporters of the deposed president since the start of the academic year in September.

On Wednesday, a student from Al-Azhar University was killed in clashes with security forces on campus.

The dead student was shot in the head with a birdshot pellet at around midnight.

According to Al-Ahram, clashes also took place near Nasr City's Workers University on Friday, where security forces arrested several Muslim Brotherhood members for allegedly possessing guns and destroying four vehicles, included one owned by the police.

Several mid- and high-ranking Muslim Brotherhood members are now behind bars, following a security crackdown against the group in the wake of the August sit-in dispersal.

duality of MB
The duality of the Muslim Brotherhood is starting to give me a migraine on the streets and in their gatherings and in their mosques their vehemently racist rhetoric stirring up hatred in Egypt and encouraging martyrdom in their fight for ballot box legitimacy. Their power in the media is what disturbs me that they have so many outlets and well educated presentable spokespeople (Heddad et al) that they seem to be the victim in all this Egyptians need to start winning the international media war now.

Fanatics fantasy
This is the height of insanity on part of the hoodlums who are trying to hold Egypt for ransom. Create terror and confusion among people and make merry while the nation burns. This appear to be the attitude of the fanatical combine which is trying to gain sympathy through ulterior motives. But the people have come to know of their evil intentions and will give them a resounding reply in the forthcoming elections.

agenda of chaos
The Muslim Brotherhood are doing exactly what they were intended to do - cause chaos and destabilisation to weaken the state. Whoever finances them knows that is the limit of their capabilities....it suits certain agendas, apparently.

The brotherhood has accomplished nothing but terrorize the people of Egypt, now, out of desperation this act of terrorism. Yet this won't stop mindless followers of this terrorist organization to come here and call every one else a terrorist. Tells you clearly, how brainwashed simple minded people can be doesn't it????
