SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico: Dozens of students at the University of Puerto Rico have clashed with police and security guards during protests over a proposed $800 annual fee.
The students raised barricades around the school early Tuesday for what they say is a two-day blockade.
One female student was charged with assaulting a police officer and several others broke car windows with sticks and pipes.
Earlier this year, students launched a two-month strike to protest budget cuts and changes to the academic program.
