Following Al Azhar University's steps, Cairo University evacuates its dormitories during elections to avoid clashes and protests

Security at Cairo University began to evacuate the university's dormitories Thursday afternoon following orders from the university's adminstration.

The Cairo University administration has issued a decision to evacuate the student's dormitory for one week to avoid any students or Pro-Morsi protests during the upcoming presidential elections to be held next 26 and 27 May.

The dormitories will be fully evacuated by Sunday.

Earlier this week huge clashes erupted between Pro-Morsi students and security forces leaving one student killed and dozens injured or arrested. 

Al Azhar University, the site of ongoing bloody clashes between pro-Morsi students and police for months, also started to evacuate its student's dormitories for one week starting last Wednesday .
