Police, students clash at South African university



South African police have clashed with students at Rhodes University in the city of Grahamstown. Protests are ongoing over alleged rape. Several students have been arrested following the protests. Police used rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse the students. The demonstrations began after a list of of 11 students accused of sexual assault was published on social media on Sunday. Protesters have been calling on the university to immediately address what’s being called a culture of rape on campus. The institution is setting up a task team to tackle those issues. South Africa has one of the highest rates of violence against women in the world.
