A petrol bomb was thrown at a Wits bus in Hillbrow late last night. The petrol bomb shattered the window and the glass injured two students travelling on the bus. They were treated and are recovering. The fire that started in the bus was extinguished quickly by the security guard on board, who also helped the students off the bus. We condemn this violence in the strongest forms. A case has been opened and the police are investigating. Anyone with information should contact Campus Control on (011) 717-4444.
