Following a massive gathering at the College of Education in Hajja, security forces attempted to arrest the chairman of the supervisory committee of the college, which triggered clashes between the security forces and students. Security forces arrested 10 students and used heavy fire during their clashes with the students who threw stones at them.
Meanwhile, students at Arhab Collage of Education started voting Saturday morning outside the college campus after the college’s dean refused to hold the elections at the campus.
Students in the different faculties of Sana’a University, surprised by the removal of the candidates’ posters from the allocated places, were forced to post new ones.
Similarly, Dhamr, Taiz and Hadramaut universities witnessed massive election campaigns in preparation for the upcoming student elections.
