At least 14 people were wounded on Wednesday in clashes that erupted during pro-democracy demonstrations staged at several Egyptian universities.

Clashes at Banha University in the Qalioubiya province erupted between supporters and opponents of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, leaving four people – including three security guards – slightly wounded.

Ten students were also injured in clashes between pro- and anti-coup students at Alexandria University.



Similar clashes were reported in the Nile Delta province of Sharqiya, although no injuries were reported after security guards intervened to break up the warring sides.

Pro-democracy protests have rocked several universities throughout the country since the academic year began in September.

The most violent university protests have been seen at Cairo's Al-Azhar University, where the academic year began earlier this week after having been postponed by almost one month.
