Two journalists were injured when two factions of the Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) clashed during an event at the Barisal University (BU) on Thursday.

The injured journalists, Azam Khan and Tariqul Islam, were covering the event. 

The event was organized marking the birth anniversary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Locals said that some BCL activists beat them up and snatched their mobile phones as they were capturing footage of the clash.

The university administration with help from law enforcers brought the situation under control.

He said that the mobile phones were later returned to the journalists.
