  • Description

    The streets of Cairo, where only a few day ago angry students clashed with police riot squads, are now back to normal.

    The student riots, which came after a series of sit-in's at Cairo Universities, disrupted the life of the city: almost a repast of what took place a year ago between police and students.

    Now the Universities are closed, and the Government intends to keep them closed until the start of the mid-year holidays on January 13th. Other Institutes of Higher Education have also been closed and a total of 150,000 undergraduates are reported to be affected.

    Special riot police have remained at the ready in order ton contain any further student unrest.

    Whatever the outcome of the recent rioting, the students' grievances are likely to remain, the "No War, No Peace" Middle East situation being at he roots of their discontent.
