#UFS: Latest video to form part of greater probe
A video has reportedly emerged of a female UFS student being attacked by a protester.
JOHANNESBURG The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) says a new video, which reportedly shows a female student at the University of the Free State (UFS) being attacked by a protester, will form part of its probe into an apparently racially fuelled rugby brawl.
The commission says its investigating the matter and will report back to campus management.
Two weeks ago, outsourcing protesters disrupted a rugby game in Bloemfontein, resulting in students, rugby players and parents fighting on the field.

The Free States Human Rights Commission's Buang Jone says this new evidence about what may have happened on the night of the rugby match last month now has to be considered.
In the video, a black protester is assaulting a white female in the vicinity of the rugby stadium where the violence erupted.
But the commission can't say when the investigation will be concluded.
SRC President Lindokuhle Ntuli says protesters never intended to become violent.
The intention was to disrupt the rugby game in a peaceful way. We never foresaw any violence.
Ntuli says nothing has changed since classes resumed more than a week ago and students are still being treated differently based on the colour of their skin.
