Defiant student supporters of the Brotherhood protested in Cairo on Thursday night, clashing with opponents of deposed Islamist president Mohammad Mursi in a flare up that left one person dead, the interior ministry said.
  
A Friday ministry statement added that seven Brotherhood supporters had been arrested after police intervened with tear gas.

The MB on Friday vowed to continue their protests, despite the crackdown on their movement. "Let's begin with full force and peacefulness a new wave of majestic anti-coup action," said the Brotherhood-led Anti Coup Alliance in a statement.
  
Thursday's protests came hours after a bomb hit a bus in northern Cairo, wounding five people and prompting condemnation from US Secretary of State John Kerry. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Kerry had also "expressed concern" about the Brotherhood's designation as a terrorist group, in a phone call with his Egyptian counterpart Nabil Fahmy.
