Horrific school fight in Tonga caught on video

A student severely beaten and sustained a large cut in his face following a fight among students in Nuku’alofa was caught on a video first uploaded into Youtube on November 10, 2014.

The video shows a boy got knocked out and was lying unconscious on the road while he was kicked in the head.

Warning – the video contains offensive language in Tongan and the fighting may shock viewers

Women, apparently related to the boy were heard crying and calling the name Sali while the boy was lying unconscious on the road.

The women were among the people who helped to protect the boy while he was being attacked.

The boy has a large cut in his face.

The fight spreads and more fights continued while the injured boy was taken to the roadside and was later taken on a pick-up van.

Kaniva News could not be able to confirm the authenticity of the video and whether the claim the fight was between Tonga College students and Liahona High School students was true or not.

However according to information we have it suggested the video was the latest after or before a fight reported on local media in the first week of November. Following that fight a student from Apifo’ou college was seriously injured after he was allegedly beaten by students from Liahona High School.  The victim was admitted to hospital and was in a critical but stable condition.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
