ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Egyptian students marched in support of ousted Islamist President Mohamed Mursi at several universities around the country on Tuesday to demand Mursi's return, and call for justice for protesters killed by security forces. Several hundred students marched from inside Cairo University to a square just beyond the University's gates, where they beat drums, and chanted for Mursi's return. Mursi was removed from power by the army following mass protests against him in late June. Many of the students held up the four fingered sign that symbolizes solidarity with those killed when the Raba'a al-Adawiya square was cleared by the security forces in August. More than 1,000 Mursi supporters have been killed by the army and police since the crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood and Mursi's supporters began in mid-August. On Sunday, 53 people were killed and hundreds wounded in clashes with security forces, the highest death toll in months. Sunday's clashes took place on the anniversary of the 1973 war with Israel - meant to have been a day of national celebration. The countries signed a peace agreement in 1979. The government accuses the Brotherhood and Mursi's supporters of stoking violence and chaos, and had declared a war on terrorism to restore stability to the country. The Muslim Brotherhood accused the army of staging a coup and working with security forces to eliminate the group through violence and arrests, allegations the military denies. Students at universities in several cities responded to a call to come out and protest today, with clashes reported with the security forces at Zagazig University, where Mursi was once a professor. At Cairo University students held a vigil outside the campus gates, before retreating back inside when riot police and the army appeared in strength. Meanwhile, suspected militants killed six Egyptian soldiers near the Suez Canal and fired rocket-propelled grenades at a state satellite station in Cairo on Monday, suggesting an Islamist insurgency was gathering pace three months after an army takeover. The Brotherhood denies the military's charges that it incites violence and says it has nothing to do with militant activity.
