CAPE TOWN - Protesting students at the University of Stellenbosch have reportedly been injured after clashing with security on campus.

The group of students who initially suspended their sit-in at a university library yesterday, returned.

Management then issued the demonstrators with a warning that if they don't leave the library they could be charged.

Stellenbosch University's Martin Viljoen says, "Students blocking the entrances were served with notices this morning that they need to leave, which they didn't do.

"The students resisted in force and it seems like they are students and possibly some of the security people that have been injured and the university campus health is also treating students."

They are demanding tuition fees be scrapped.
