Police fired tear gas at about 7,000 students protesting the Prophet Mohammad cartoons on Monday in northwestern Pakistan.

The protest began in the morning when students began marching to universities in Peshawar, urging people to join their demonstration.

The crowd threw stones at a Christian university, breaking windows and causing other damage.

Police shot the protesters with tear gas and hit them with batons when they tried to march on the provincial governor's residence.
