TRIPOLI, Lebanon: Students, parents and educational bodies protested Saturday in Mina, north Lebanon, over a decision to shut down a public school for girls in the area.

The protesters gathered outside the Andre Nahhas High School in Mina raising banners in protest, including one proclaiming “the Andre Nahhas High School is not for sale.”

Lebanese authorities had previously decided to bring down the school building, arguing it is in a poor state of repair.

However, the students and parents’ committee argue that the building only needs to be rehabilitated.

Andre Nahhas is the only girls-only school in Mina.
