    Background: Secondary and technical schools -- closed by the Dahomey Education Ministry following a strike by students earlier this month -- reopened on Friday (19 November) with no incidents reported. Students were required to attend their schools accompanied by a parent or tutor, and sign an agreement that they would not become involved in any strike or action prejudicial to the school.

    Soldiers patrolled school grounds to ensure against any incidents.

    The strike call, early in November, was issued by the General Union of Dahomey Pupils and Students (UGEED) after disagreement over school and university reforms, which took effect this year. On 6 November, the government banned the union and closed the schools.
