Egypt: Universities paralysed by strikes

Staff and students at Alexandria University on strike, 1 October

From Assiyut to Alexandria, Egypt’s universities were largely paralysed by strikes organised by students and staff as term began. The strikes have been fuelled by demands to democratise senior university appointments and calls to get rid of university and faculty heads appointed by the old regime.
