Journalists attacked by security at Faisalabad’s University of Agriculture

Journalists were attacked by guards at a university in Pakistan.

Reports say that multiple members of the media were injured by security employed by the University of Agriculture in Faisalabad yesterday, 20 June.

Sources say the journalists were attempting to cover a student-related incident at the institution.

The university expelled four students a few days ago on charges of criticising the university administration on social media.

Allegedly a media team had been denied entry to the university and when they refused to move they were set upon by security.

Video footage appears to show a man on the ground being kicked by uniformed guards.

The guards are said to have pelted stones when local reporters attempted to assist their fellow journalists.
