CAIRO: One person was killed near Egypt's Cairo University on Wednesday when protesters supporting ousted President Mohammad Morsi clashed with security forces, a Health Ministry official told Reuters.

The official said eight were wounded but could not give further details. The protesters were demonstrating against a court ruling earlier this week condemning more than 500 alleged Muslim Brotherhood supporters to death.
