(MENAFN - Jordan Times) Calm was restored at Balqa Applied University in Salt on Tuesday following a minor scuffle at the university's main gates, which resulted in no injuries.
The brawl, which took place between members of two tribes, ended quickly after police forces intervened, a senior police official said.
The official declined to disclose the cause of the fight except to say that it was over a personal dispute between the students.
"The situation was quickly brought under control without any reported injuries," the police official, who declined to be named, told The Jordan Times.
Raed Bakhit, director of the university's public relations department said classes were taking place as usual.
"We did not have to halt any classes and the situation is calm and normal on campus," he told The Jordan Times.
In November last year, classes were briefly suspended at the university after tribal violence erupted on campus and spread to the city of Salt, 20 kilometres northwest of Amman.
Calm was restored after two days of riots that prompted the intervention of security forces.
Rioters blocked roads with burnt tyres and stones and vandalised property.
At the time, Public Security Department Spokesperson Lt. Col. Mohammad Khatib told The Jordan Times 14 people were arrested in the violence, which left three police officers injured.
