SEREMBAN, May 30 ─ Three African students were hurt after they were attacked by 30 men in the compound of a Lagenda College hostel in Mantin near here on Wednesday night.

"We have not made any arrests. In the incident, several cars were damaged as was a guard post in front of the hostel," he said yesterday.
He said initial investigation showed the incident arose from unhappiness over the African students' relationships with women in the area.
Osman said the situation was defused at about 2.30am yesterday.
"I advise residents in the area to avoid worsening the situation. I remind them not to repeat the incident.
"I have instructed police to monitor and patrol the area to look for the instigators," he said.
The situation was tense after the incident as 50 African students armed with baseball bats and metal rods gathered in front of the hostel to vent their anger over their friends' beating.
Things came to a head at 12.30am as the students refused to disperse despite police and college authorities trying to pacify them.
Outside the compound, a group of men and local residents, also armed with baseball bats, had gathered.
A police team headed by Seremban district deputy chief Supt Azmi Abu Kassim had talks with the African students' representatives and college authorities and pacified the crowd at 2.30am. ─ Bernama
