Baghdad Students Thwart US Raid

IraqSlogger.com
Excerpt:
Students at Baghdad’s Mustansariya University frustrated a US raid on Thursday with a large protest, Aswat al-Iraq reports in Arabic.

“The American forces tried this morning to raid Mustansiriya University in the East of Baghdad, but the students made a massive demonstration protesting the trespassing of these forces on the university campus,” a student told the news agency, adding that the action “forced these forces to withdraw from the university.”

“The students were upset at the clear violation of the university campus,” he continued, “which is no longer a sanctuary after the explosions that targeted it and the attempts of the American forces to enter it.”

Mustansiriya University is the second largest university in Iraq, after Baghdad University, and was the site last month of a suicide bombing which killed and injured dozens of its students.
