Gunmen in a drive-by shooting killed three Egyptian policemen and wounded nine during an overnight rally by Islamist students in the capital, Cairo, authorities said Tuesday.The Interior Ministry said about 250 students from the religious Al-Azhar University took to the streets late Monday night to show their support for Morsi, who hails from the Muslim Brotherhood group.No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but two Al-Qaeda-inspired groups, one based in the Sinai Peninsula, have carried out scores of similar attacks on military and police targets in recent months.Al-Azhar University is a hotbed for Brotherhood students, who have been rioting almost daily, both inside the campus and in the surrounding streets, since Morsi was deposed last summer.
