ST THOMAS, Jamaica — Two students of the Yallahs High School in St Thomas are now in hospital nursing stab wounds and three in police custody following a brawl in the rural town.

Reports are that there was a dispute sometime Friday morning between two students, one male and a female, which led to the involvement of other students.

While details of the incident are unclear, two of the involved students were taken to hospital after they sustained stab wounds.

The incident comes just two days of a 14-year-old female student of Anchovy High in St James was fatally stabbed by a classmate.
