Syrian forces raid student dorms
At least 4 killed during university clashes in Aleppo
Syrian forces stormed student dormitories during an antigovernment protest at Aleppo University Thursday, firing tear gas and bullets in an hours-long siege that killed at least four students and forced the closure of the state-run school, activists said. It was not clear how long the university would remain closed after the siege, which began late Wednesday when around 1,500 students held a protest against President Bashar Assad’s regime. Pro-regime students attacked the crowd with knives before security forces swept in, firing tear gas, and then live ammunition, activists said.
