Protesters Oppose Military Takeover Outside Egypt Colleges

57 killed in Sunday clashes


Hundreds of Muslim Brotherhood supporters chanted "Down with the military government" outside Cairo University, defying Egypt's army-backed authorities despite deadly clashes with security forces two days earlier.

Supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsi had urged university students to protest against the army following the violence on Sunday, one of the Egypt's bloodiest days since the military ousted the Islamist leader on July 3.

The death toll from Sunday's unrest rose to 57, state media said, with 391 people wounded.
