'Muslim Brotherhood' protesters storm London university lecture on Egypt
by Robin de Peyer
A guest lecture at a London university was abandoned when protesters backing Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood chased the speaker from the stage.
Speaker Mohamed El-Nabawy had to be ushered off stage by security guards when around 30 demonstrators stormed a lecture theatre at Bloomsbury's School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), which is part of the University of London.
They were said to have targeted the public discussion, focusing on the challenges facing Egypt, because of Mr El-Nabawy's ties to the Tamarod group which opposed ex President Mohammed Morsi.
