At least five students were injured on Tuesday in clashes between supporters and opponents of ousted President Mohamed Morsi at two Egyptian universities.

According to sources, five students were injured in clashes between pro- and anti-Morsi students at Zagaziq University in the Nile Delta Sharqiya province.

Similar clashes were also reported at Cairo University after pro-Morsi students chanted slogans against Defense Minister Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, widely perceived as the architect of Morsi's July 3 ouster by Egypt's powerful military establishment.

Pro-Morsi students also clashed with security personnel after attempting to bring students from outside the university on campus.

On Tuesday, Egyptian students staged protests against the killing of at least 54 pro-Morsi demonstrators on Sunday, which also marked the 40th anniversary of Egypt's October 6 military victory against Israel.

Egypt has remained in a state of turmoil since the powerful military establishment ousted Morsi on July 3 after massive and well-coordinated demonstrations against his presidency.

The unconstitutional change of government is described by the ousted president's backers as a military coup, while supporters of the move call it a military-backed "popular uprising".
