More than a 100 students were arrested on Saturday after they set fire to a university building in the Egyptian capital. One student died during the incident.

This comes a day after three people were killed in related violence between Muslim Brotherhood supporters and the police.

Violence erupted on Friday after the army-backed government declared the group a terrorist organisation after 16 people were killed in a suicide attack on a police station on Tuesday. The group condemned the attack.

The Muslim Brotherhood and its Islamist allies have called for protests in response to the government decision.
