An Al-Azhar University student was killed in clashes in Cairo between anti-coup protesters and police, a anti-coup group said Friday.

In a statement, the "Azhar Students against the Coup" movement said that Salah Abu Hemeida had beenshot dead by police during clashes with security forces that had been trying to disperse a protest near Azhar University in eastern Cairo.

Movement spokesman Mahmoud al-Azhari said security forces were besieging the university's dormitories and firing teargas inside the campus, causing a number of students to suffer gas inhalation.

"We will continue our protests inside the dormitories to denounce the storming [of the dorms] on Wednesday by security forces, which left one student dead and 120 injured," al-Azhari said.

On the same day, a child was killed in clashes between supporters and opponents of ousted president Mohamed Morsi in the canal city of Suez, a medical official has said.

The ten-year-old, identified as Samir Mohamed Ahmed, was pronounced dead-on-arrival at the Suez General Hospital after sustaining birdshot injuries.

Anti-coup protesters staged fresh rallies on Friday to mark the passage of 100 days since the bloody August 14 dispersal of two protest camps held by supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi in Cairo's Rabia al-Adawiya Square and Giza's Nahda Square.
