Tens of armed men stormed Zagazig University's campus in the Sharqiya governorate, locking in approximately 50 students in a campus mosque and injuring a number of them in the process.

Clashes broke out on Tuesday after a number of Muslim Brotherhood-aligned students fought with a number of their 'independent' colleagues over student union elections. The independent students accused the Islamist students of trying to dominate the Student Union's sub-committees.

On Monday, students clashed with each – using rocks, sticks and belts – after the election results were announced, in which the Islamist students won a decisive victory, thereby dominating the majority of the councils.
