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

said.

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.
