BAHRAIN: University reopens amid tight security

Bahrain University welcomed back its first group of returning students last week, two months after the facility was ransacked amid violent clashes during the height of the country's unrest, writes Alicia de Haldevang for Gulf Daily News.

Students are going back to class in phases, as education chiefs seek to ensure a smooth return to normal campus life. However, they must all re-register with the university and sign a code of conduct stating they respect the rules, while each student is being given a compulsory identification card that must be worn at all times on campus.

This is just one of several new protection measures in place at the university, which now has security guards stationed in each of its colleges. New surveillance cameras have also been installed, but students said the increased security meant they felt safe going back to class. Those returning last week were law, information technology and engineering students.
