Durban – Twenty high school pupils were arrested for allegedly pelting their fellow pupils with stones and rocks in Weenen, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Tuesday.

A group of suspended and expelled Weenen Combined School pupils resorted to "disruptive and riotous" behaviour, preventing other pupils from getting into the school on Monday morning, Lieutenant Nqobile Gwala said.

The windows of two buses, several windows at the school, and those of homes nearby, were broken. Those arrested were aged between 15 and 19.

They would face charges of public violence.

KwaZulu-Natal police commissioner Lieutenant General Mmamonnye Ngobeni said they would not allow pupils who had no idea what they wanted to do with their lives to interfere with those who wanted to get an education.
