Gaza university suspends classes after student killing

Nov. 29, 2011 12:57 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 30, 2011 11:05 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Al-Azhar University in Gaza City suspended classes on Tuesday in mourning for an economics student killed in a fight a day earlier.

The university's administration expressed its regret over the death of Khalil Muhammad At-Taweel and said he was killed in a brawl outside the campus.

However, police said four people were arrested suspected of killing At-Taweel on campus, adding in a statement that a staff member was assaulted on university grounds.

A spokesman for the Interior Ministry in Gaza, Ehyab al-Ghussein, said police began investigating the incident immediately and were in contact with the university's administration.

Al-Ghussein added that all universities in the Gaza Strip had a police presence on campus except Al-Azhar University.

"The administration of Al-Azhar University has for long refused to have police officers on campus, and that caused endless fights and brawls," he said.
