Over 400 policemen attacked in five years

Port Louis- Mauritius (PANA) -- At least 460 police officers have been attacked in the last five years in Mauritius, according to statistics released Monday in Port Louis.
The latest case is that of a 41-year-old policeman who died last week after being attacked in Goodlands, in the north of the island, by a group.
"We are aware that we are doing a very risky job.
We want to tell those who accuse police officers of brutality that we also we are victims of anti-social behaviour," said Jose Iyanasee, president of the Police Federation.
