Students burn down dorm in Kisii over Euro football match miss out

Students of Itierio Boys High School in Kisii burnt down seven of their 12 dormitories after their teachers refused to allow them to watch a football match on television on Saturday night.

The students reacted in anger after learning that they would not be allowed to watch the game between Portugal and Croatia in the ongoing European championships, Euro 2016.

The game, which started at 10pm, ended in a nil-nil draw and was extended to extra time, during which Portugal scored the winning goal. As a result, it ended past midnight.
