CAIRO - Several Egyptian students were arrested on Sunday as the start of a new academic year was marked by protests against the army-backed government and clashes between supporters and opponents of deposed Islamist President Mohamed Morsi.

A Cairo court is due to rule on Monday on whether Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood should be dissolved, a verdict which could trigger more protests and violence. Nearly 1,000 people were killed after the army ousted Morsi in July after mass protests.

Mursi supporters staged small protests in universities in cities including Cairo and Alexandria, and students were arrested across the country, media and security sources said. There was no figure available for the number of arrests.

Eleven students were injured in clashes in Morsi's home town, Zakazik, according to the website of the Al-Masry Al-Youm daily.
