Mass food poisoning afflicts Cairo students
Tuesday 02 April 2013
Nearly 500 students from a university in Cairo have been admitted to hospital with food poisoning.
A health ministry official said that all 479 food poisoning cases came from Al-Azhar University’s dormitories in the capital’s Nasr City district. The poisonings occurred after a meal served at the dormitories on Monday.
The outbreak led to a protest outside residence halls by hundreds of students angered by the incident, blocking roads and chanting slogans against the university’s management.
