Micronesian community concerned by violence at Hawaiian high school

Updated 11 December 2012, 9:40 AEDT

Over to Hawaii, where a brawl on Friday forced the closure of Kealakehe High School on the Big Island.

It followed a week of violence between native Hawaiian students and others from the Federated States of Micronesia.

There were smaller fights throughout the week, including one that caused a lockdown . . . but it was the brawl involving 20 to 30 students that lead to the school being closed.
