Durban students arrested
Durban -Four students were arrested during a protest at the University of Durban-Westville on Tuesday, KwaZulu-Natal police said.
The students went on a rampage around 07.30 after they were informed about a court interdict against protests and disruptions at the university as seen in the past weeks, said Colonel Vincent Mdunge.
"Students then got angry and barricaded roads with burning tires and rocks, preventing vehicles from coming in and out of the institution," said Mdunge.
"They also threw stones at police who had been called to monitor the situation. Police used water cannons to disperse the crowd."
Mdunge said tensions had died down by Tuesday evening.
Three students were injured and another three were arrested for public violence.
Two weeks ago, students brought the university to a standstill protesting against residence tariff hikes, among other things. Those arrested would appear in the Durban Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
