Egyptian security forces arrested ten Azhar University students during a rally in the southern province of Assuit to demand the release of detained classmates.

Students hurled stones at security forces, which fired teargas to disperse the protesters.

Amid anti-military slogans, protesters chanted slogans for the release of classmates detained during rallies in support of ousted president Mohamed Morsi.

Democratically elected Morsi was removed from power on July 3 by the military establishment following mass protests against his presidency.

Supporters of the deposed president have been staging rallies on almost a daily basis to denounce what they describe as the "military coup" against Morsi and demand his reinstatement.
