Rare students protest held in Tahrir Square Cairo, Egypt
Hundreds of Egyptian high school students staged a rare protest in Tahrir Square on June 27 but security forces moved in quickly to disperse them with tear gas, detaining several of them.
|The student protest was over the cancellation of high school exams after someone leaked answers to some of the tests. The students allege that there is corruption and mismanagement in the Education Ministry. Some parents protested along with the students. The protest began at the Ministry with the students demanding that Education Minister Al-Hetali el-Sherbini resign. They later marched to Tahrir Square the site of the mass protests against Hosni Mubarak that led to his resignation in 2011.|
