Like Ahmed Al Ali, Ahmed Al Masri and Abed Allatif Al Zain from Aleppo, many young men have been forced to out of school because of the war in Syria. The three teenagers are wanted by the government for taking parts in demonstrations. They decided to volunteer as firefighters in rebel controlled areas of Aleppo, "until the regime breaks down" they say. In their free time, Ahmed Al Ali, Ahmed Al Masri and Abed Allatif Al Zain say they like to read poetry and books so that they don't forget what they learned in school.
- Ahmed Al Ali: "I’m a high school student in my last year. I joined the revolution after I took part in many protests. After the rebels took over many areas in Aleppo, I volunteered at the fire department of Aleppo with a few of my schoolmates. Thank god we were able to extinguish a few fires and saved many lives. Hopefully I will go back to school when the war is over".
Ahmed Al Masri: "I’m a university student, I joined the revolution and I wasn’t able to continue my studies. We gathered a group of friends to volunteer as firemen and help extinguish fires in Aleppo. This mission didn’t keep me from studying. In our free time we still read poetry and literature books. We hope everything will go back to normal so that and we can go back to university. When the war is over, will be proud to have helped our country by being part of Aleppo's fire department.
Abed Allatif Al Zain: "I’m a high school student in my last year. I dropped out of school and joined the revolution. Then I registered at Bab Al Nayrab fire department in Aleppo. We helped extinguish many fires. Thank god we were able to take control and saved many lives. My friend Ahmed suggested that we keep reading books so we wouldn’t forget what we have studied before. We are hoping to go back to school when the revolution wins.
Clashes at Cairo University between security forces and students protesting Monday's mass death sentence for 529 of Muslim Brotherhood supporters have left one student dead and eight injured, the health ministry reported on Wednesday.
The clashes began when the pro-Brotherhood students tried to move their protest from the university's campus to nearby Al-Nahda Square and were met by security forces, who forced the students back onto the campus, state-run TV reported.
The students shot fireworks at the police and pelted them with stones, state-run TV added.
Private TV channel CBC showed large groups of students running in the vicinity of the university campus and police moving to disperse students gathered in Al-Nahda Square – site of a protest camp for ousted president Mohamed Morsi that was violently cleared by security forces in August.
Brotherhood supporters had previously announced they would protest on Wednesday against the ruling of a court in Minya on Monday in which 529 persons loyal to ousted president Mohamed Morsi were given the death penalty on charges of killing a police officer, among others.
The verdict is expected to be appealed.
A security source told Al-Ahram's Arabic newspaper that groups of pro-Morsi students also protested on Wednesday at Zagazig University in Sharqiya governorate. Twelve people were wounded in clashes that ensued between supporting and opposing students.
The source said rioting students smashed the glass facade of the university's administration building and attacked a number of students and cars.
Police in Zagazig arrested eight rioters and brought the situation "under control," the security source added.
