High School Students Demonstrations in Taiz [Archives:1999/24/Local News]

June 14 1999

Hundreds of students from Taiz Secondary School, Al-Faruq School and Taiz Scholastic Institute went on a demonstration on Saturday 12th June. The demonstration took place after the students had their Physics exam, which they said was very difficult. The demonstration then moved to the Taiz Education Bureau, as the students wanted to express their anger to the people in charge. However, they were separated and held back by the police forces. The police fired shots into the air to control the situation. Some of the students were arrested and put into prison.
