Panama guardsmen quell anti-Shah riots at school

National Guardsmen firing shotguns Thursday broke up anti-Shah riots at the National Institute high school, leaving 16 students and one guardsman injured, officials said. The Panama National Guard said 16 students were being treated for shotgun wounds at the Santo Tomas hospital. One guardsman had head injuries from stones hurled by the angry students.

The National Institute is Panama's top public high school -- and a focus of political unrest, including five days of demonstrations against the presence of the deposed Shah of Iran two weeks ago.
