Thousands of students rioted at a southern China college to protest fees and other campus issues, a Hong Kong newspaper reported Saturday.
The riots took place on June 25 as a protest against fees charged by the Jiujiang Institute, a college jointly run by the military and the government, the paper said.
The protesters were complaining about a variety of fees levelled by the school for textbooks, utilities and television sets at the dormitories, it said.
Students also burned banners and destroyed campus phone booths, the newspaper reported.
