A number of students of the Mosul University’s Faculty of Engineering on Monday staged a demonstration against the arrest of a professor by army forces, according to one of the protest’s organizers.
“The students demonstrated inside the campus against the arrest of Professor Omar Ahmad Youssef, without a warrant by army forces last night,” Ameer Younes told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.
“The angry students demanded authorities in Ninewa to stop the recent arresting campaigns and to free innocent detainees,” he explained.
Mosul, the capital of Ninewa, is 405 km north of Baghdad.
