Classmates and families of expelled students staged a protest Monday 18 June 2012 to demand the release of five students held by police after raids on Nouakchott University medical school last Thursday. As is their usual habit, police dispersed the gathering with tear gas and batons. 

The National Union of Students in Mauritania reported on Sunday that they have documented evidence against the dead of the Medical school for his part in the violent repression and abuse of students and are ready to press charges. Parents of medical students who were expelled during the crackdown have also protested several times in recent weeks to demand their reinstatement.
