Students Fight at Taiz University [Archives:1999/18/Local News]

May 3 1999

There was a big fight between students in Taiz University last Monday. It was because of holding a party in Al-Zubeiry hall. Some students wanted to celebrate the anniversary of the Hijira of prophet Mohammed while the university staff had a musical party at the same time. So, a big fight took place. Guns were used. Three students were wounded, while the university security did nothing. It seem to be a maneuver by the Islah and PGC parties to control the university. The trouble makers are now under investigation.
