Morsi female assistant appears in protest for 1st time
Bakinam al-Sharqawi, ousted president Mohamed Morsi's assistant for political affairs, appeared on Sunday in a student protest in Cairo University, her first public appearance since Morsi's ouster on July 3.
 
Al-Sharqawi participated in a student protest outside Cairo University to make the passage of 100 days since the violent dispersal of pro-Morsi sit-ins in Cairo's Rabaa al-Adawiya and Giza's Nahda squares.

She was joined by Omayma Kamel, who worked as an advisor to Morsi on women's affairs.

Protesting students burned the American and Israeli flags and chanted slogans against policemen and army personnel standing in close proximity.

The pro-democracy National Alliance for the Defense of Legitimacy has called for mass protests on Sunday to mark the passage of 100 days since the mid-August's bloody dispersal of Rabaa and Nahda.

On August 14, Egyptian security forces used force to disperse the pro-Morsi protesters, leaving hundreds killed and thousands injured.

Morsi was ousted by Egypt's military on July 3 following massive demonstrations against his presidency.
