Egypt tightens security at universities

Private security companies begin policing campuses, following student-led protests last year.

    Egypt's universities have begun implementing tough security measures as students return to classes.

    In the run-up to the new academic year, the government has brought in private security companies to police campuses after bloody clashes with students last year.

    Following the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi, many universities became the focal point for protests.
