    Police have arrested 144 protesters over clashes at a Cairo university that left five students injured, one critically, Egypt’s ministry of interior has said. 
     
    The ministry said that the critically injured student  was in intensive care with a bullet wound to the chest after the clashes at Al-Azhar University. 
     
    The arrested students were being questioned and referred to prosecutor. 
     

    A security official  has said police have entered the campus of a Cairo university to quell a second day of protest by supporters of Egypt’s ousted president.

     
    Students of Al-Azhar University have held persistent protests since the start of the academic year in September. 
     
    The rallies have frequently descended into clashes with police.
     
    The head of university security, Mahmoud Subeiha, told Egypt’s private CBC TV on Monday that he asked the police to enter the campus Monday to put down the protests.
     
    A security official said the students set a security vehicle on fire and threw fire bombs at police. 
     
    The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief reporters.
     
    Students rallied on Sunday against the referral of 21 of their colleagues to trial for earlier.
