Students and journalists clash during protest at Brazilian university

Late in the evening of Nov. 7, students occupying the chancellor's office of the University of São Paulo in protest against the presence of military police on the campus attacked journalists covering the event, reported the news agency Estado.

The commotion began during a conversation between journalists and the students soon after they decided to occupy the university offices and announced they did not want the press present, reported G1.

A photographer's finger was injured and he was treated at nearby hospital. A cameraman was hit with a rock and another was knocked over in the scrum, according to the newspaper Folha de São Paulo.

According to Estado, one of the students, identified as "Eduardo," said he did not approve of the aggressions and that the behavior of these students was not reflective of the movement's position regarding the press.
