Tripoli, 19 April 2015:
A fourteen year-old boy died and ten school fellows were injured, when a fight between . . .[restrict]students at a Sebha high school turned deadly today and weapons were fired by one or more pupils.
A local councillor is reported to be insisting that there had been no tribal rivalry involved in the gunfight.
The dead boy was named as Musa Ibrahim Mohamed. Sebha Medical centre said that it had treated ten of his fellow pupils, all suffering from gunshot wounds, some to the head and chest and others to limbs.
It appears that a unit of the Third Force of the Misratan Central Shield force surrounded the school and disarmed the student or students involved.
Anxious parents rushed to the school to collect their children. All lessons were suspended. The school is to be shut down for at least a week while investigations into killing take place.
One member of staff was reported as saying that the dispute which led to the shooting, had carried over from an altercation at a petrol station last week. Teachers had known about the argument and the headmaster had been calling in parents in an effort to defuse the tension.
