Kenyan students riot over World Cup

A secondary school in Kenya has suffered enormous damage after students rioted for three days following a ban on watching World Cup matches.

    Several buildings were destroyed as students of the Amasagi Mixed Secondary School rampaged after teacher’s denied the children the right to watch matches in the school’s dining hall instead of turning up to classes.

    Most of the damages occurred in an ultra-modern laboratory which will now be out of use for the upcoming mid-year examinations.

    The school’s board of governors ordered the students to leave the facility, although they have now been requested to return for classes on Monday.
