Egyptians have held demonstrations against the military rulers in the capital, Cairo, and the cities of al-Khusus, Beni Suef and Alexandria.

Demonstrators took to the streets on Saturday. Heavy clashes erupted between police and the protesters.

Earlier in the day, at least two students were killed and several others injured in clashes between Egypt security forces and student protesters at Al-Azhar University in Cairo.

The students had staged a protest against the military-installed government.

On Friday, nine people were killed as police fired tear gas and bird shots at protesters.

The opposition Anti-Coup Alliance, which is led by the Muslim Brotherhood, has called for seven days of street protests.

The call came just one day after the interim government declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.

Human Rights Watch has criticized the Egyptian government for designating the Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, adding that the measure is aimed at intensifying the crackdown on the movement’s peaceful anti-government activities and its supporters.

The rights group said that Cairo must immediately reverse the decision.

The movement has been organizing mass anti-government protests after the military overthrew the country’s first democratically-elected president, Mohamed Morsi, in early July.

Hundreds of supporters of the group have been killed in clashes with the army over the past few months.
