Lomé, Togo - Twelves students, among them the leader of the Movement for the Togolese Student's Fulfillment (MTSF), Komlanvi Kondo, were arrested Thursday and Friday, following their confrontations with gendarmes who wanted to prevent them from holding their general meeting in the campus of the Lome University.

Nineteen students were injured in a scuffle which erupted between the students and the gendarmes.
