Protests turn lethal in Egypt

Protests turn violent at Cairo University with at least one student killed as clashes broke out between supporters of ousted President Mohamed Mursi and security forces The students were protesting against harsh new restrictions on the right to protest -- a move recently adopted by the military-backed interim government that ousted Mursi. Scores were injured in the uproar. Similar scenes in Alexandria as students protested over severe sentences handed down to female protesters. An Alexandria court jailed 14 women for 11 years for obstructing traffic during a protest by supporters of Mursi that took place late last month. Mursi was ousted by the military in July, following mass protests against him. Since then a crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood has killed more than 1,000 protesters and led to the imprisonment of thousands.
