    (ANSAmed) - CAIRO - Egypt's bomb squad have defused a bomb found in the law faculty at the Cairo University on Wednesday after Muslim Brotherhood students took over the building, destroying and ransacking some of its rooms. Police reported the news, saying that the rudimentary bomb had been ''placed in the faculty held by pro-Morsi students''.

    A student was killed on Wednesday in clashes between pro-Morsi student protestors and police in front of the Ben Suef University, south of Cairo. Medical sources quoted by the new agency MENA have said that the student killed was the son of a Muslim Brotherhood leader. ''The young man was 13 years old and was killed by several bullets,'' the sources said. Three other students were injured in clashes with the police.

    The director of the Beni Suef hospital, Dr Hamdi Mustafa, has confirmed the death of the adolescent, Amr Ali Kafafi, who was the son of the Brotherhood leader Ali Kafafi, a surgeon working at the hospital. The young man arrived lifeless at the polyclinic with several bullets lodged in different parts of his body, the source added. The other three students were hit by bullets to the head

    In Upper Egypt, another four student supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood were injured when police tried to disperse a pro-Morsi protest on the edges of the Assiut University, ANSA was told by security forces, who noted that the police had used tear gas.

    Clashes between the police and pro-Morsi students have also occurred at Cairo's Al-Azhar University. A prosecutor has ordered an inquiry after a number of students raised an Al-Qaeda flag on the university roof. The prosecutor's office has issued arrest warrants for the students involved.
