In Pictures: Security forces disperse Students Against the Coup protest in Tahrir
Security forces dispersed a protest organised by Students Against the Coup (SAC) in Tahrir Square on Sunday after the student group march from Cairo University reached the square.
Around 3pm, the student group marched from Cairo University to Tahrir following protests at the university campus, with the march reaching the square around 4.30 PM
At 5pm, security forces from Qasr Al-Nil Bridge fired a handful of teargas canisters. Protesters ran to Talaat Harb and Mohamed Mahmoud streets.
Protesters then regrouped at the intersection of Talaat Harb and Al-Bostan streets, and chanted against the Ministry of Interior and what they described as “military rule”. Protesters began hurling rocks at security and army forces based at the intersection of Talaat Harb Street and Tahrir Square. Security forces were joined by area residents who chanted against the Muslim Brotherhood, while SAC protesters chanted for former President Mohamed Morsi.
Police forces fired teargas on protesters, leading to a series of hit-and-run clashes, which were still ongoing at the time of print.
