Gaza students still locked out of Egyptian universities

Last month, Egypt's ambassador to "Palestine" assured Gazans that they would no longer have any impediments to being able to attend Egyptian universities and that Egyptian security will not stop them.

However, nothing has changed. Students who were already attending classes are finding that they are not allowed to attend final exams this term. According to one student, some Egyptians blamed Palestinians for being behind the Alexandria church bombing and as a result the security services resumed their restrictions on Palestinian Arabs.

Is it still spring?
