University students supporting Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood have called for rallies in several universities in protest to a court ruling against the group.
A court in Cairo on Monday disbanded Muslim Brotherhood and confiscated its assets, Al-Yawm Al-Sabi reported.
The students said they will hold protests against the move in different academic centers including Cairo’s College of Agriculture on Tuesday.
After the court verdict was issued, the Egyptian military began confiscating the group’s property including the Al-Dawa Islamiya center in the city of Bani Sweif.
The center had been established by a senior Muslim Brotherhood member Hassan Juda.
Egypt has been the scene of increasing violence since the army chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi pushed aside President Mohamed Morsi and suspended the constitution on July 3.
On July 4, al-Sisi declared that the head of the Supreme Constitutional Court, Adly Mansour, had been appointed as the new interim president of Egypt.
After Morsi's ouster, Brotherhood supreme leader Mohamed Badie said the coup against him was illegal and millions would remain on the street until he is reinstated as president.
Hundreds of protesters, mostly Morsi’s supporters, were killed or wounded during the deadly violence that broke out afterwards.
