Seven students from Samoa's Avele College are to go to trial in April next year after a brawl with students from rival colleges in August.

The brawl at the Apia market place left several students seriously hurt.

The Samoa Observer says 14 witnesses will be called for the trial starting on April 7th and expected to run for a week.

The students have been given bail, though this was opposed by the prosecutor.
