Egypt protestsClashes between rival Egyptian students at a university in Alexandria killed at least one student on Thursday, a supporter of ousted Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammad Mursi, police said.

The student was killed when pro-Mursi protesters clashed with their opponents at Alexandria University, the police in the Mediterranean city said in a statement.

Police said they did not intervene in the clashes but set up a security cordon outside the university.

Mursi's supporters have used campuses as relative safe havens for protests.

Police had repeatedly denied their involvement in several deaths during campus protests, but protesters accuse them of using lethal force.
