Dominican students accuse police of shooting 3

The Associated Press

A student organization in the Dominican Republic is accusing police of shooting and wounding three protesters at the Caribbean country's largest public university.

The Amin Abel Liberation Front says the students were shot late Tuesday during a demonstration against a rise in tuition and a new enrollment fee at the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo.

Group spokesman Daniel Jerez said Wednesday that he was shot in the foot and he accused police of shooting without warning.

Police have not issued a statement.

University Chancellor Mateo Aquino says the increases were approved to buy furniture and improve the school's laboratories and main library.
