Egyptian Students Protest Food Poisoning

If you're homesick for your college cafeteria, this should help. Hundreds of students protested in Egypt on Wednesday after nearly 500 students from Al-Azhar University in Cairo were admitted to the hospital with food poisoning. A senior Egyptian health minister said on Tuesday that the poisoning occurred after a meal was served at the dormitories on Monday, but students insisted this was not the first case of food poisoning at the university. Students demanded “clean food” as well as the dismissal of the head of the director of the dormitory. The university, meanwhile, issued a statement warning the students not to “exploit” the incident.
