University student Mansour Niang, 27, who set himself on fire to protest grading changes that would keep him from continuing his studies, rests on steps outside the entrance to the emergency ward, after being treated for burns on his arm and face at the main municipal hospital, in Dakar, Senegal Friday, March 15, 2013. Niang and two other students who tried to immolate themselves Friday are part of a group of 50 geography majors who say a new grading system has unfairly left them one credit short of receiving their diplomas, and will block them from continuing to their fourth-year masters degree at the public university. Student witnesses said students unconnected to the protest immediately threw sand on Niang to put out the fire and stopped the two other students from setting themselves alight.
