2014 hostage crisis[edit]

On 7 June, gunmen linked to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant briefly took students at the university hostage after killing a number of guards and destroying "a bridge leading to the main gate".[1] The crisis was resolved when students were permitted to leave several hours later, departing the campus in buses provided by the local government. No students were reported to have been injured during the incident.[2]
