Benghazi, 9 April 2013:
A Benghazi girls’ school which has been closed for almost a week following a violent attack . . .[restrict]on a teacher may reopen tomorrow, Wednesday, the Libya Herald has been told.
Khalifa Amari who teaches at the Nassaim Al-Hurriya School on 20th Street in central Benghazi (previously Al-Masira Al-Kubra School) was beaten and stabbed last Thursday by a group of youths outside the school after he tried to stop them harassing girls leaving the premises.
He suffered multiple stab wounds and had to undergo surgery. He is still hospitalised at Benghazi Medical Centre.
The school management which decided to close the school in protest at the attack have now indicated a change of heart following apologies from the families of the attackers. The Libya Herald has been told that the fathers of the youths went to both the school and to the hospital to apologise.
There have been a significant number of attacks on teachers in the city in recent months. [/restrict]
