Prosecutors have ordered the detention of 26 people arrested during Wednesday's clashes between supporters of former president Mohamed Morsi and security forces at Al-Azhar University in Cairo.

They are accused gathering illegally, thuggery, destroying public property and possession of weapons.

The suspects, who include eight Al-Azhar students, were allegedly arrested amid the clashes.  

Investigations are underway at the site of the clashes and the administration building that was stormed by Morsi supporters.

The university president requested security forces enter the campus to quell the protests.

A number of protests have taken place at the university since the start of term two weeks ago, and police remain on campus on Thursday.
