Demonstration Against lack of Security at Basra University
Hundreds of students and faculty demonstrated Thursday against the failure of Coalition troops in the southern Shiite city of Basra to prevent the assassination last Sunday of the dean of the college of engineering. They carried placards demanding that students and professors at the university be protected by British troops. (-al-Sharq al-Awsat)
Likewise, hundreds of physicians and students of the medical school in the northern city of Ramadi demonstrated against the incarceration by the Americans of the city’s director-general of health.
