Pupils in South Africa’s Free State province were filmed flipping a police car on Thursday after going on the rampage over the alleged death of their schoolmate.
The child is alleged to have taken their life after being bullied by a teacher, the Times Live site reports quoting a local police spokesperson.
“It is reported that the child left a suicide note to say what caused the death and then the learners at the school picketed and it became violent,”
Warrant Officer Peter Mabizela is quoted as saying Pupils from surrounding schools converged at Tlotlisong Secondary School where they held two police officers and teachers hostage inside the school, Mr Mabizela added.
