#Mauritania police just arrested another 3 med students


3 medical school students arrested 9 June 2012

National Union of Students in Mauritania just reported police detained 3 female students from the medical school of Nouakchott University and took them to Zeina 1 police station. Other female students at the scene were beaten, one of them lost consciousness and had to be taken to hospital.

Police have been harassing and detaining medical students for many weeks. They hold the “record” for the number of times their campus has been stormed by police this year – over 100.

Several students have also been expelled under extremely doubtful circumstances.
