DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) - University students fought each each other with guns, bombs
and arrows Feb. 6, killing as many as seven people and injuring about 500, news reports
The clashes in the western city of Rajshahi turned the campus into a battleground
for six hours as students shot at each other in the dormitories. Others hurled bombs
and ransacked about 500 hostel rooms, said Badiuzzaman, a local government official.
United news of Bangladesh, an independent news agency, said seven people may have
been killed and hundreds injured.
The violence started after an argument between two groups over holding a rally at
the same venue.
