(ANSAmed) - TUNIS, MARCH 6 - The dean of the Literature and Life Sciences Faculty of the Tunisian University of Manouba has been attacked in his office by Salafite students, because he refuses to allow students wearing a niqab, a full Muslim veil, to take lectures. Habib Kazdaghli, Tunisie Numeique reports, was in his office when two Salafite students came in, turning the place upside-down. The two may have asked other Salafite students to give them a hand. At that moment Habib Kazdaghli decided to take shelter at the police station of Manouba. Reinforcements are currently arriving at the station. (ANSAmed).
