SOUTH AFRICA. Hundreds of students demonstrate as part of a nation wide movement against higher university tuition fees. African riot police fought stone-throwing students for a second consecutive day amid national calls by demonstrators for free higher education. Protests and demonstrations initially began last fall over proposed tuition increases of as much as 10 and 12 percent, and were reignited last month over the revelation that 2017 fees would increase by another eight percent.
